Let Me Out Here with Emily Pease, Wed., Apr. 17, 6 pm

Join us Wed., Apr. 17, 6 pm as Emily W. Pease will be here to sign her new short-story collection Let Me Out Here (Hub City, pb., 232 pp., $16).

Let Me Out Here is the 2018 winner of the C. Michael Curtis Short Story Book Prize. Spread over varied landscapes of the South and offering surprising moments of raw revelation, the characters here find themselves at crossroads or alone on an empty street at night. With Let Me Out Here, Pease joins the ranks of Mary Gaitskill, Ottessa Moshfegh, and Kelly Link, and adds to their tradition a deft, singular style and a voice as darkly funny as it is exacting.

Emily W. Pease’s stories have appeared in Witness, the Missouri Review (Editors Prize in Fiction), the Georgia ReviewShenandoah (including the Bevel Summers Prize), Crazyhorse (Crazyshorts! Prize), the Alaska Quarterly Review, and Narrative. After teaching for many years at the College of William & Mary, she now teaches writing to veterans through the Armed Services Arts Partnership, where she also serves as a member of their arts council. She is currently beginning a novel about logging the last forests of West Virginia. She lives in Williamsburg, Virginia.
