Faber Social Presents Short Stories
Monday, 14 April 2014 from 19:00 to 22:00 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Faber Social in association with The White Review present a night of short stories featuring exceptional talent from both sides of the Atlantic.
We're lucky to have the winner of the 2013 BBC National Short Story Award, Sarah Hall, fresh off the back of her new publication Mrs Fox (published by Faber in April). In support of his new collection Leaving the Sea (Granta), Ben Marcus joins us from New York, and slightly closer to home, but no less exotic, Jon McGregor arrives from Nottingham in support of his 2013 collection This Isn't The Sort of Thing That Happens To Someone Like You (Bloomsbury). Injecting a healthy dose of glamour direct from Peckham we have Evie Wyld, who published her second novel All The Birds (Jonathan Cape) in 2013. Robert Williams, former winner of the Betty Trask Award, publishes his new novel Into The Trees (Faber) in April. He will be writing something new and exclusive for this very evening. Completing this stellar line-up we have Stuart Evers, whose debut book Ten Stories About Smoking won the London Book Award.

Faber & Faber is one of the great independent publishing houses in London. We were established in 1929 by Geoffrey Faber and our first editor was T. S. Eliot. We are proud to publish prize-winning fiction and non-fiction, as well as an unrivalled list of modern poets and playwrights. Among our list of writers we have six Booker Prize winners and twelve Nobel Laureates, and we continue to seek out the most exciting and innovative writers at work today.
