Novels in Stories at Baltimore Book Fest

The novel in stories has been around for a long time in one form or another. But in recent years, with novels in stories winning Pulitzers and National Book Awards, it seems that the form is making a big comeback.

Perhaps that is why the CityLit Stage decided to host “Novels in Stories” hour at the Baltimore Book Festival. As the festival’s website puts it, “Books by two Baltimore writers have recently been published that are described as "a novel in stories": Eric D. Goodman's Tracks and Susi Wyss's The Civilized World. Join Eric and Susi for a reading and discussion about the form, which seems to be back in vogue.”

“Novels in Stories” at the Baltimore Book Festival’s CityLit Stage, takes place on Sunday, September 25 at 3 p.m.

Learn more about Susi Wyss, whose book was picked as a book to watch by Oprah, at her website.
