A program for adults 7:30 pm-9:00 pm Free Alice MacKay Room, Lower Level Join Ray Robertson as he discusses his latest work of non-fiction, Why Not? Fifteen Reasons to Live. Writers Cathy Stonehouse and Rebecca Rosenblum read from their latest short story collections, Something About the Animal and The Big Dream. Ray Robertson's Why Not? Fifteen Reasons to Live is a wonderfully engaging collection of essays in praise of such perennial human pleasures as art, love, solitude, and intoxication in which Robertson's own experiences and ideas are elegantly interwoven with those of various artists, philosophers, and thinkers. In Cathy Stonehouses collection Something About the Animal, the world is coming apart at the seams. These are stories of imminent crisis, which tread the hysterical edge of madness in a way few writers have managed; stories about the search for meaning, about haunted understanding, and about real life horror. Stories that are bleakly, blackly funny, imbued with generosity, and possessed of great beauty. In The Big Dream, acclaimed short story writer Rebecca Rosenblum documents a new generation coming of age in the workplace. With its transparent, biting, understated prose, The Big Dream is an In Our Time for the twenty-first century.
