Location: The Bookworm
Event Code: BW13C
The best short stories are condensed and compelling pieces of storytelling that linger with the reader long after they have finished. The form is also universal, as these masters of the short story – hailing from three different countries – can attest. Jon Bilbao, from Spain, has published three short story collections; Robert Drewe, from Australia, is an author and editor of two international short story anthologies; and Jess Row, from the U.S., is the author of two short story collections whose work has been anthologized three times in The Best American Short Stories and have won two Pushcart Prizes and a PEN/O. Henry Award. The session will be moderated by International School of Beijing’s Brad Philen, author of the short story collection Everything is Insha’Allah.
