Dalia Rosenfeld will read from The Worlds We Think We Know, a collection of short stories called “A profound debut from a writer of great talent” by Adam Johnson. Fiercely funny and entirely original, this debut collection of stories takes readers from the United States to Israel and back again to examine the mystifying reaches of our own minds and hearts. “Flying beyond what we are used to calling ‘conventional realism,’ Rosenfeld points to a shimmering spot just beyond the horizon, and leaves us yearning.”―Cynthia Ozick   

Dalia Rosenfeld is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and her work has appeared in the Atlantic, AGNI, Michigan Quarterly Review, Mississippi Review, and Colorado Review. She has received a grant from the Artist Committee at the Israeli Ministry of Immigrant Absorption, the Tobias Wolff Award for Fiction, and the Mississippi Review Prize.
