Posted Date: 11/13/2012

Eden Prairie Reads is celebrating its 10th anniversary by selecting 10 short stories from The Scribner Anthology of Contemporary Short Fiction (Revised and Updated 2nd Edition).

By choosing 10 short stories, the Eden Prairie Reads planning committee offers the community the opportunity to explore a different literary genre from its past selections.

The short stories selected from the anthology are:

Silver Water by Amy Bloom

The Caretaker by Anthony Doerr

Tiny, Smiling Daddy by Mary Gaitskill

Marie by Edward P. Jones

Wickedness by Ron Hansen

Orientation by Daniel Orozc

 A Temporary Matter by Jhumpa Lahiri

The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien

Two Kinds by Amy Tan

The Rest of Her Life by Steve Yarbrough

The Eden Prairie Reads committee is planning community events for 2013 related to the art form of the short story and the 10 story selections. A limited number of community copies of The Scribner Anthology of Contemporary Short Fiction will be available at the Eden Prairie Library for distribution in early 2013.
