Prairie Lights

Drake University professor Carol Roh Spauling will read from and talk about her new book, Waiting for Mr. Kim and Other Stories with author Sam Chang.

“In Carol Roh Spaulding’s amazing linked story collection, Waiting for Mr. Kim and Other Stories, we find that rare gift–writing that gets just about everything done, and done very well. Every page not only delights and instructs but also provokes and moves us, lingering like a remembered dream. . . . Waiting will quietly pull you in and knock you out.”–Joan Frank

Carol Roh Spaulding’s short stories and essays have appeared in Glimmer Train, Ploughshares, Nimrod International, Mississippi Review, December magazine, and many other publications. Her forthcoming novel, Helen Button, received the 2021 Eludia Award from Hidden River Arts. She lives in Central Iowa with her family and teaches at Drake University in Des Moines.

Sam Chang is the Director of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and the author of The Family Chao, InheritanceAll is Forgotten, Nothing is Lost and Hunger.
