Selected Shorts: The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2013

Award winning authors + actors collaborate on shorts

The Best American Nonrequired Reading is a yearly anthology put together by Dave Eggers and a group of lit savvy Bay Area high school students. It spans everything from fiction, journalism, essays, and even comics. In this installment of Selected Shorts, BD Wong (Law & Order), joins forces with Pulitzer Prize-winner Jennifer Egan and Believer editor, Andrew Leland, to present selected works from the novel. The three lit heads have enlisted actors Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks), Tate Donovan (Argo), and Brandon J. Dirden (The Piano Lesson) to perform their take on the stories in a unique way. Best available balcony seating. Over 18s only.
