Tues, Jan 5, 7 pm SLT • Andrea Barrett

With the advent of a new year, I'm introducing a new author ... new to my readings, and another of my favorites, whose writing combines the precision of science with the longings that visit every human heart.

Andrea Barrett (born November 16, 1954) is an American writer. Her Ship Fever collection of novella and short stories won the National Book Award 1996. Barrett received a MacArthur Fellowship 2001, and her book Servants of the Map was a finalist for the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. She writes historical fiction, often set in scientific fields, and features women characters. Tonight, I'll read her short story, Rare Birds, with another story in the wings if time permits ... Reading in voice, chat in voice or text ... All are welcome!
