NEA Big Read Presents: Short Stories on Stage
Home. Inspired by Ron Rash’s short story collection Burning Bright, the Poughkeepsie Public Library District and Read650, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts, present a dozen original, curated, true short stories about home. Join us to hear regional writers sharing their personal experiences of leaving, returning, finding, escaping, longing, or rediscovery – in 650 words or less.
Selected stories will be read by the authors at this public, live-streamed event during this fall’s NEA “Big Read” and published in book format – a printed “Thoughts of Home” anthology that will be available for purchase at the event and at Amazon.com.
Show: Sunday, October 27, 2 PM
Venue: Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center, Poughkeepsie
Tickets: $5 advance / $8 door. Can be purchased online here.
