An Evening with Ron Carlson

Join us on April 20 when Ron Carlson will be our featured guest. Ron Carlson is the director of UC-Irvine's M.F.A. program in fiction and professor of English, is the award-winning author of several short story collections and five novels. His collection, The Hotel Eden, was a New York Times Notable Book and Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year. His novel The Speed of Light, was his first for young readers. He also wrote Ron Carlson Writes a Story (Graywolf), an excellent book on the writing of short fiction. On this evening, he will talk with Barbara about writing fiction, long and short form, and will take your questions. Orange County's independent bookseller, Laguna Beach Books, will be on hand selling Ron's books.

Our salon will take place at:
Scape Gallery
2859 East Coast Highway
Corona del Mar, CA, 92625

$20.00 includes nibbles, sips and sometimes cake. Advance tickets are required. Walk-ins are discouraged as seating is limited.

Please register soon as we expect this to be another sold out event (and we hate turning people away).

Upcoming on Sat., May 15, is the celebration of the new anthology, Orange County Noir (Akashic Books).

On June 8, plan to join us for an evening with Aimee Bender.
