Join Carrie Messenger, associate professor in Shepherd’s Department of English & Modern Languages, as she discusses In the Amber Chamber, an award-winning collection of stories in which fairy tales and speculative fiction intersect with the hard facts of eastern European history. These political fables take place in eastern Europe, Kansas, and even other planets, re-framing our understanding of each story. A dessert reception will follow the presentation. The winner of the 2017 Brighthorse Prize for Short Fiction, In the Amber Chamber will be available for purchase at the event through Four Seasons Books of Shepherdstown. Free and open to the public!
