Prairie Lights

Writers’ Workshop graduate Juliana Lamy will read from her new short story collection, You Were Watching From the Sand.  She will be joined in conversation by Rasheeda Saka. “Every sentence Juliana Lamy writes is like a match being struck. Not many authors debut with her clarity of vision, inventiveness, and verbal agility, and I would wager almost anything that You Were Watching from the Sand will mark only the first chapter in an important body of work.” – Kevin Brockmeier
