Please join us for a free, in-store author event with Ronna Wineberg and Donna Baier Stein. Ronna will read from her new collection of stories, Nine Facts That Can Change Your Life, and Donna Baier Stein will read from her debut novel, The Silver Baron’s Wife. The two authors also will discuss the process of writing, their experiences publishing a book, and how their own writing and editing stories for a literary journal interact.

Praise for Nine Facts That Can Change Your Life: “Nine Facts That Can Change Your Life is a richly imagined, deeply felt, and unusually fully realized collection. In story after story, Ronna Wineberg shows her characters making surprising swerves and connections, reaching from the past into the present. I marvel at how much she can accomplish in a relatively small number of pages, and at how these stories stay with me. Wineberg is a writer of lovely generosity.”—Margot Livesey, author of The Flight of Gemma Hardy
