LAURA ESTHER WOLFSON
Winner of the Iowa Prize in Literary Nonfiction, Laura Esther Wolfson, will read from her literary debut, For Single Mothers Working as Train Conductors. “Set variously in America, France, and the former Soviet Union, these interlinked stories have a certain magic about them. They speak of loss and disappointment, of foiled ambitions and failed marriages. And yet there is something uplifting about them—owing no doubt to the author’s reserves of talent and wisdom.” —Daphne Merkin
