Edward Hamlin, winner of the Colorado Book Award, and the Iowa Short Fiction Award, to read from his collection, Night in Erg Chebbi

Explore is thrilled to host Boulder author and Colorado Book Award winner Edward Hamlin, who will read from his twisting and illuminating collection, Night in Erg Chebbi and Other Stories, which spans the globe, taking us from Belfast to Brazil, Morocco to Manhattan. The teenaged daughter of an IRA assassin flees Northern Ireland only to end up in Baby Doc's terrifying Haiti. An American woman who has betrayed her brother, only to lose him to a Taliban bullet, comes face to face with her demons during a vacation in Morocco. A famed photojournalist must find a way to bring her life's work to closure before she goes blind, a quest that changes her understanding of the very physics of light.

Join us for an intimate reading, book signing and discussion with this fascinating author and winner of the Iowa Short Fiction Award (judged by Karen Russell).
