DESCRIPTION

Published by: Epigram Books

The Angel Tiger and Other Stories | Most Excellent and Lamentable

Authors Jason Erik Lundberg and Barrie Sherwood will look at the idea of short story collections and how they are put together and how authors/editors keep it fresh. With so many stories being told year after year, can stories truly be original? There will also be a Q&A and a book-signing at this event.
