FWR contributor Valerie Laken‘s story collection, Separate Kingdoms, has just come out, and those of you in NYC can hear her read from it live at KGB Bar this Sunday, April 3, at 7:00 pm. Laken will read with Cat Valente as part of KGB’s Sunday Night Fiction series.
And stay tuned next month, when we’ll be giving away three copies of Separate Kingdoms in honor of Short Story Month!
