After two acclaimed story collections, Laura Van Den Berg presents Find Me, her debut novel - a gripping, darkly funny tale of a young woman struggling to find her place in the world.
Her first collection of stories, What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us, was a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection and a finalist for the Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award. Her second collection of stories, The Isle of Youth, received the Rosenthal Family Foundation Award for Fiction from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
Presented by the NYS Writers Institute - Laura will read from Find Me tomorrow at 8:00 p.m. at the Huxley Theatre at the NYS Museum in Albany. At 4:15 p.m., she will hold an informal seminar in the Standish Room in the Science Library on the UAlbany uptown campus.
