The Jenny McKean Moore Reading Series Presents: Amber Sparks

Join us for the next Jenny McKean Moore Readings Series Event, featuring fiction writer, Amber Sparks. This event has been rescheduled to take place on Tuesday, March 20th, at 7:30 in the Monroe Building, Room 110.
Sparks’ most recent work, The Unfinished World: and Other Stories, is a collection of short fiction that, as Amazon notes, is “…populated with sculptors, librarians, astronauts, and warriors―[they] form a veritable cabinet of curiosities. Mythical, bizarre, and deeply moving….” Ms. Sparks’ reading is sure to be a delightful experience that combines both the surreal and the personal. 

Amber Sparks currently resides in DC. She is a self-proclaimed lover of, “books and art and politics and grammar and theater and music and video games and history and technology and all kinds of movies, especially monster movies and noir and spaghetti westerns and the Marx Brothers.” Her writing has been compared to such literary voices as Kelly Link and Karen Russell. For more on her most recent book, check out this in-depth review.
