We are thrilled to announce the publication of Among Animals 2, the second edition of our popular anthology of short fiction that explores the relationships among animals and humans.
Last week, we celebrated the book’s publication in Australia with a seminar on writing about animals at the University of Sydney.
We are grateful to Peter John Chen, Dinesh Wadiwel, and Sascha Morrell for making this event possible; we enjoyed a lively discussion about animals and society as well as the depiction of animals in literature. It was also a great pleasure to hear Sascha Morrell read from her beautiful story, “Roo,” which appears in the anthology.
And stay tuned for more Among Animals events here in the U.S.!
On Thursday, October 13, at 7 p.m., contributors Rachel King and Catherine Evleshin will read from their stories at Annie Bloom’s in Portland, Oregon. Click here for details.
On Friday, October 14, at 7 p.m. Charlotte Malerich will read from her story at The Potter’s House in Washington, D.C. The reading will be followed by a discussion about animals as part of the larger social justice movement. Click here for details.
