Blogger/Author Pairings:
Jessica Francis Kane, author of This Close
In conversation with blogger Alex Shephard
Introduction by series host Ron Hogan

Our ongoing Blogger/Author Pairings series features conversations between authors and bloggers who share territories, passions, and preoccupations. Jessica Francis Kane’s new book This Close has been highly praised by fellow authors Cheryl Strayed, Emma Straub, Jennifer Gilmore, Pam Houston and others. Through twelve stories, some stand-alone, others woven with linked characters, Kane questions the tensions between friendships and neighborliness, home and travel, family and ambition revealing the everyday patterns that, over time, can swerve a life off course. Jessica talks with blogger Alex Shephard, editor-in-chief of Full Stop, an online journal “committed to an earnest, expansive, and rigorous discussion of literature and literary culture.” The event is introduced by Blogger/Author Pairings curator Ron Hogan, creator of the seminal literary blog
