The collection has something for everyone. Short fiction explores topics such as the pain of first love, the bond between mother and daughter, the pull between family and commitments, and the banality of a grocery store checkout. Poems run the gamut from wistful meditations through dark humor to angry declamations.
“Putting this collection together was a labor of love,” says Jan B. Parker, co-host of the reading series and an editor for the anthology. “Our writing community is so talented, and this book really shows the spirit of cooperation that infuses our Third Thursdays. And we’re looking forward to topping last year’s donation to InterAct.”
