Megan Mayhew Bergman, author of Birds of a Lesser Paradise and the forthcoming novel Almost Famous Women, will read from her work and sign books at Hotel Vermont on Wednesday, May 28 at 7:30 p.m. Her short stories have appeared in The Kenyon Review, Agni, Ecotone, Carolina Quarterly, and many other places. She’s posted a list of her publications here and you can sample some of her delightful stories. I’d recommend “The Pretty Grown-Together Children.” This event is free and open to the public. Take a look at her stories and you’ll be totally convinced that this is a must-see reading. You’ll also have a chance to ask questions and get a book signed. RSVP on Facebook. RSVP on Meetup.
