Writers’ Workshop graduate Mark Mayer will read from Aerialists: Stories. "A dazzling collection filled with characters who evoke, in their flawed humanity, the strange, sorrowful and ever shimmering world of the circus. Mayer's bittersweet stories are playful, haunting and wonderfully inventive. Read them and be transported." —Mona Awad
Mark Mayer’s stories have appeared in Granta, Guernica, Colorado Review, and Mid-American Review, and a story from Aerialists is featured in American Short Fiction’s latest issue. He lives in Denver.
