Pulitzer finalist reading from work-in-progress tonight (March 4) at Eclipse Mill

Inkberry writer's project is trying out tonight (Saturday, March 4, 7:30 p.m.) a new venue for its literary readings -- the gallery space at the Eclipse Mill ( /) on Union Street in North Adams, a beautifully-refurbished old mill building that now holds live-and-work artists' lofts. It also holds a gallery, which is where we're presenting this reading. The first reader will be Jill Gilbreth, who holds an MFA in fiction from Emerson (and who works as Inkberry's program administrator). She'll be reading from a story called "When the Stars Begin to Fall," which I've had the deep pleasure of reading, and which I'm looking really forward to hearing aloud.The second reader will be Andrea Barrett. Andrea is the author of five novels, most recently/The Voyage of the Narwhal/, and two collections of short fiction, /Ship Fever/, which received the National Book Award, and /Servants of the Map/, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. She'll be reading from her n!
ew novel-in-progress.Kerry Fried has written, "Barrett excels in both physical and social description, writing with a naturalist's precision and a passionate imagination." The *Times* of London calls Andrea "an original, memorable voice." Don't miss this chance to hear her read her work! The reading will be followed by a wine-and-cheese reception in the gallery.
