Bark: Stories (Knopf)
We're thrilled to present acclaimed writer Lorrie Moore (A Gate at the Stairs, Birds of America), who will visit Skylight to read and sign her new short story collection, Bark.
This reading is free and open to the public (first come, first served). But, because we're expecting a large crowd at this event, we'll be giving out numbered tickets to the signing line to keep things organized. To get a ticket, you must purchase a copy of Bark: Stories here at Skylight Books. The tickets will be available starting Tuesday, February 25, when the book goes on sale. They will be available in-store, or you can order on our website and leave a note in the "Order Comments" field. We will also hold a ticket for you if you order and pay for a book over the phone.
Praise for Bark:
"[A] powerful collection about the difficulty of letting go of love." --The Washington Post
“These stories are laugh-out-loud funny, as well as full of pithy commentary on contemporary life and politics.” --Publisher’s Weekly (Starred Review)
“Moore once again brings her acute intelligence and wit to play….The language has a fizzy rhythm that will have the reader turning the pages. Smart, funny, and overlaid with surprising metaphor…Highly recommended.” --Library Journal (Starred Review)
