Steve Almond with Ben Greenman

Friday, October 28, 7:30 PM
Steve Almond discusses God Bless America with Ben Greenman

Acclaimed fiction and nonfiction author Steve Almond (author of My Life In Heavy Metal and Candyfreak, among others) presents God Bless America, a timely new story collection that offers a comic and forlorn portrait of American life: our lust for fame, our racial tensions, the toll of perpetual war, and the pursuit of romantic happiness. Each of the thirteen stories in this ambitious new collection is an investigation of America's soul, its particular suffering, its injustices, and its possibilities for redemption. The book has already received advance praise from the likes of Lorrie Moore, Karen Russell, and Junot Diaz, who writes "Steve Almond is one of our finest literary provocateurs. His stories are without equal in their beautiful terrible honesty." Almond discusses his work with journalist, author and New Yorker editor Ben Greenman, author of the fiction works Superbad, Superworse, and A Circle is a Balloon and Compass Both.
