Just in time to fill the vacuum that will be left behind as we finally end the election season, David Ebenbach will be reading from Into the Wilderness at Rosemont College, just outside Philadelphia, this coming Monday night. (The reading will be held in the main building, which I’m told you can’t miss, because it looks like a castle.) Other readers include MaryAnn Miller, Christine Salvatore-Smith, Pietra Dunmore, Maranda Stewart, and Tracy Kauffman Wood. Free of charge and open to the public! As always, feel free to bring 1,000 of your closest friends!
When? Monday, November 12th, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm.
Where? Main building of Rosemont College, 1400 Montgomery Ave., Rosemont, PA 19010
Come on out to the Writer’s Center in Bethesda, MD (4508 Walsh St.), to hear a reading by David Ebenbach, winner of this year’s Washington Writers’ Publishing House Prize for his short story collection Into the Wilderness, and Kathleen Hellen, winner of this year’s Jean Feldman Poetry Prize for her book Umberto’s Night. Followed by a reception and book signing! This event is FREE!
Date and time: Sunday, November 4th, 2:00-4:00 pm.
(And if you can’t make it to the Writer’s Center, David will also be at Politics and Prose on 11/18. Stay tuned.)
Tune in (via internet connection) as David Ebenbach gets interviewed by the hosts of Big Blend Radio about Into the Wilderness, his new short story collection! The spot should begin at about 8:00 EST and last 20-25 minutes. Click here to listen, either live during the show or, afterward, to the podcast!
The Washington City Paper‘s Eve Ottenberg writes, “This fiction focuses on the most important human relations, the ones central to our conceptions of who we are and what life is about. Ebenbach does this all while playing to his strength: using the small, the ordinary, the everyday to give little glimmering glimpses of the enormous, the extraordinary, and the startlingly true.”

Writing as a Sacred Path’s Jill Jepson writes, “Each of these fifteen compact tales is built on crisp language, precise dialogue, and perfectly chosen details. But underneath their apparent simplicity lie fully realized characters living richly imagined lives of need, longing, desire, sorrow, loss, and love. These stories manage to be both delicately wrought and emotionally powerful. They are the kind of stories that read quick-and-easy, but pack a powerful punch.”
