Writers Live @ CLP Main: Beth Bosworth

Click here to register.

Winner of the 2012 Drue Heinz Literature Prize, Beth Bosworth visits CLP - Main with her winning collection of short stories, The Source of Life and Other Stories.

The Source of Life and Other Stories is a rugged and wry look at everyday life through the eyes of characters described by Bosworth as, “doing battle with their own worst selves as much as fate or circumstance.” Focusing on their internal struggles set against the backdrop of family life, Bosworth explores the lives of her characters as they seek redemption and survival.

Beth Bosworth is the founding editor of Saint Ann's Review. Her publications include a novel, Tunneling, and a collection of short stories, A Burden of Earth. A book signing will follow Beth Bosworth’s talk and reading. Copies of her book will be available for purchase from the University of Pittsburgh Press.

Writers LIVE @ CLP – Main is a collaboration between Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures.
