When we met last summer to plan Stories on Stage’s sixth season, I asked everyone to write down a dream list – writers we loved, writers we fantasized might accept an invitation to be our featured author. Writers – truth be told – we never expected to lure to Sacramento. Tobias Wolff was on everyone’s list. I took a deep breath and e-mailed the invitation. I waited. I expected a polite rejection, but within days, I received Tobias Wolff’s gracious acceptance.
And so – as simply as that – Stories on Stage is very pleased to announce that Tobias Wolff is the featured writer for the inaugural event of our sixth season.
An Evening with Tobias Wolff
The date: Friday, January 30, 7:30 PM
The location: Verge Center for the Arts, 625 S Street, Sacramento
The format: two of Wolff’s most powerful short stories – In the Garden of the North American Martyrs, and Bullet in the Brain will be read by two of Sacramento’s most prominent actors.
Suggested donation: $10
We’ll have more about this event and the other writers featured at Stories on Stage this coming year (some of the other writers on our dream list also accepted!) in future posts.
Mark your calendars for January 30: you won’t want to miss a chance to see, hear, and meet one of America’s foremost writers.
