An Evening with the 2022 One Story Literary Debutantes
Featuring Omer Friedlander, Michelle Hart, Gwen E. Kirby, Lydia Conklin, Kate Folk, Aamina Ahmad, and Arinze Ifeakandu
One Story’s annual Literary Debutante Ball is a send-up of the debutante balls of old: instead of featuring young society ladies, it honors One Story authors who have published their first books in the past year. Greenlight is thrilled to partner with One Story once again for an evening of readings from the 2022 Debutantes at this free virtual event the night preceding the Ball. Join us on Zoom for this year's festivities—the virtual prelude to this year's in-person celebration—featuring emerging authors Omer Friedlander, Michelle Hart, Gwen E. Kirby, Lydia Conklin, Kate Folk, Aamina Ahmad, and Arinze Ifeakandu!
