Happy Book Birthday to Places Like These by Lauren Carter!

Today, we are delighted to celebrate the release of award-winning writer Lauren Carter’s moving short story collection, Places Like These!

A 2023 Fiction Pick from CBC Books, 49th Shelf, and Winnipeg Free Press, Places Like These is a poignant exploration of the longings that sit just beneath the surface of daily routines and close relationships. You can read an excerpt from the title story on Open Book and check out this great recommended reading list Lauren curated for 49th Shelf. In addition, find her in conversation about Places Like These on The Artisanal Writer and The Artisanal Writer Live Podcasts. Psychologically complex and astute, these are stories that stick, expanding our affinities with the lives that play out around us.
