"Natalie Serber's short story collection, Shout Her Lovely Name , is amazing," says Stevan. "She has a keen eye for the telling detail. Her stories take us into the emotional terrain of a single mom raising a daughter and trying to be her best friend at the same time. Serber brought me to tears more than once as I read these deft explorations of adolescence, of the long lost father who reappears, of a mother trying to be a parent and a woman in search of love at the same time." Both authors will read from their collections, take questions, and sign books.
