Advance tickets for this event have SOLD OUT. There will be a limited number of stand-by tickets available at the door. George Saunders, recipient of MacArthur and Guggenheim fellowships, is the author of four collections of short stories: the bestselling Pastoralia, set against a warped, hilarious, and terrifyingly recognizable American landscape; CivilWarLand in Bad Decline, a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Award; In Persuasion Nation, one of three finalists for the 2006 STORY Prize for best short-story collection of the year; and The Tenth of December, released in 2013, described as his most honest, accessible, and moving collection yet. The New York Times Magazine called it, “The best book you’ll read (in 2013),” and Time magazine named Saunders to its list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2013.
