Hempel. Tower. Pories. Housing Works, 9/24

This past Friday, September 24th, at New York City’s Housing Works, guest editor Amy Hempel, series editor Kathy Pories, and contributor Wells Tower gathered together to celebrate Algonquin’s 25th anniversary of NEW STORIES FROM THE SOUTH.

Kathy Pories, Amy Hempel, and Wells Tower

The reading was packed, with well over 100 people in attendance!


Housing Works was generous enough to donate specialty Southern cocktails and treats…


Workman’s own Emily Parliman and Avery Finch stopped by to check out what Amy and Wells had to say on the short story:

And a special guest, as promised, even made a surprise appearance.


All in all, a stellar event! A very special thank you goes out to Rachel Fershleiser, Director of Events at Housing Works, for putting on such an amazing event.

What a great evening, I was sitting in the front row. Do you have any more pictures from the event?
