Deborah Eisenberg and Lionel Shriver are virtuosos of short fiction. Deborah Eisenberg’s new collection, Your Duck Is My Duck - brutally funny, unsettling, with distilled meditations on the state of the world - “showcases her inimitable voice and captures our current national mood with eerie precision.” (Washington Post) Lionel Shriver’s acerbic stories in her new collection, Property, illuminate one of the modern age’s obsessions. “Shriver’s intellect and talent, her political convictions and her confidence are all on display.” (New York Times) They will read from and discuss their stories, which resonate well beyond their final words. Deborah Eisenberg is a MacArthur Foundation Fellow and Lionel Shriver is a winner of the BBC National Short Story Award. Chaired by Anne Blessing, former teacher of literature at the College of Charleston and Tulane University.
