Fiction writers CHAD SIMPSON & MARIE-HELENE BERTINO, are reading at Prairie Lights tonight at 7 PM. They both were honored with the Iowa Short Fiction Award for their collections, pictured above. I don’t know Bertino’s work, but I’ve read a few of Simpson’s stories and he’s good. And Bertino’s bio says she’s driven across the country four times, which means she’s seen a lot more of this land than most of us.

Go see them read and/or follow their tumblrs!
