|On July 28th, Bomb will host a virtual event for I Hold a Wolf by the Ears. |
Laura van den Berg (CRF 2018) wrote part of the book during her residency at Civitella.
The author will be in conversation with R.O. Kwon, author of The Incendiaries, and poet Jay Deshpande (CRF 2018) will give a short reading as well.
Here’s what Van den Berg writes about her work and her book: “Short stories were my first love and the reason why I’m a writer, so Wolf is a book that’s extra close to my heart. It has meant a lot to see the stories connect with early readers, landing on “summer reads” lists from The New York Times, O, The Oprah Magazine, Esquire, Time, and Entertainment Weekly. We also made the August Indie Next list, where Fernando Flores at Malvern Books said: “These stories are thrilling, timeless, and get better when you reread them.” “
