Thursday November 8: 7:30PM 8:30PM

This event has SOLD OUT. This event will be located at Symphony Space, 2537 Broadway at 95th St., New York, NY 10025-6990.

Man Booker Prize-winning writer George Saunders (Lincoln in the Bardo) co-hosts an evening of inventive short fiction with internationally acclaimed author Zadie Smith (Swing Time). The two friends introduce readings of their short fiction including an excerpt from Saunders’ darkly comic new short story, Fox: 8, which will be released in book format in November.

Selected Shorts is produced by Symphony Space and broadcast on more than 150 stations around the country. The Selected Shorts podcast consistently ranks as one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes. The series began in 1985 and enjoys sold-out performances to this day. Selected Shorts was conceived with a simple premise: take great stories by well-known and emerging writers and have them performed by terrific actors of stage and screen. Featuring stories around a lively theme, the favorite works of a guest author, or a special collaboration, each Selected Shorts event is a unique night of literature in performance.

Please Note: George Saunders will be signing on stage following the event.
