Portraits of a Few of the People I’ve Made Cry: Stories
Winner of the Grace Paley Prize in Short Fiction, Sneed’s debut story collection has been praised by authors such as Allan Gurganus and Steve Almond, who raved, "I can’t recall a time I tore through a story collection with such unbridled gratitude. Christine Sneed is fearless." An Evanston resident, Sneed’s writing has been published in the Best American Short Stories series, New England Review, and Glimmer Train, and she has stories forthcoming in Ploughshares and The Southern Review. Sneed holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Indiana University and teaches writing and literature at DePaul University and for the University of New Orleans low-residency MFA program. Refreshments will be served.
