Lauren Carter on The First Thirty presented by Junction Reads
May 31 @ 7:00 pmFree
On May 31st Lauren Carter will be featured on The First Thirty hosted by Junction Reads to talk about writing her collection of short stories, PLACES LIKE THESE.
“A widow visits a spiritualist community to attempt to contact her late husband. A grieving teenager confronts the unfairness of his small-town world and the oncoming ecological disaster. A sexual assault survivor navigates her boyfriend’s tricky family and her own confusing desires. A mother examines unresolved guilt while seeking her missing daughter in a city slum. A lover exploits his girlfriend’s secrets for his own purposes. Whether in Ecuador or San Francisco, small-town Ontario or northern Manitoba, the landscape in each of Carter’s poignant short stories reflects each character’s journey.”
