Head to the Central Library tonight, to the Sacramento Room at 6:00 pm, to hear fiction by two great area writers. Enjoy!

Valerie Fioravanti writes fiction, essays, and prose poems. Her linked collection, Garbage Night at the Opera, was recently a finalist for the Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction. Stories from the collection have appeared in North American Review, Cimarron Review, and Night Train. She received a Fulbright Fellowship to work on a novel set in Italy, Bel Casino. Her essays have appeared in Eclectica, Silk Road, Puerto del Sol, and others. She teaches for the UCLA Writers’ Program (online) and UC Davis Extension. She lives in Sacramento, where she runs the Stories on Stage reading series.

Renee Thompson lives in Granite Bay, and is the author of the novel The Bridge at Valentine. Her writing has received praise from Pulitzer Prize-winning authors Robert Olen Butler and Larry McMurtry. Her short stories have appeared in Narrative Magazine and Chiron Review, and she has placed in writing competitions sponsored by Glimmer Train and Writer’s Digest. She recently returned from the Sirenland Writers Conference in Positano, Italy, where she worked with Ron Carlson.
