#BLF2019# SHORT AND COMPLETE: STORIES BEHIND THE STORIES

SHORT AND COMPLETE: STORIES BEHIND THE STORIES
Colin Barrett, Peng Lun, Shi Yifeng

Monday, March 18, 8:00 PM
60 RMB | BW 18-2 | The Bookworm – TICKETS

Join us as two critically acclaimed writers, Colin Barrett and publisher and literary agent Peng Lun discuss the beauty, the brawn and the brevity of the short story. They will discuss how germs of ideas can take root, how they frame their own concepts, and how backstory can be jilted and less can amount to so much more. Colin Barrett is from Mayo, Ireland and his story collection Young Skins won the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award, the Guardian First Book Award, and the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature. Shi Yifeng is an acclaimed author and writer from Beijing. Peng Lun is a literary translator, editor and founder of Archipel Press. In 2017 he was named “Editor of the Year” by One-Way Street Bookstore Award.
