overview

Hilton Als and more celebrate the renowned southern gothic author of The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter and The Member of the Wedding, whose writing explores the tragicomedy of life in the South and the inner lives of characters who are often marginalized and misunderstood.  

"McCullers' gift was to evoke, through an accumulation of images and musically repeated phrases,the singularity of experience, not to pass judgment on it." --Joyce Carol Oates

 

This event is sponsored by The Library of America.

Selected Shorts is produced by Symphony Space and broadcast on more than 150 stations around the country. The Selected Shorts podcast consistently ranks as one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes. The series began in 1985 and enjoys sold-out performances to this day. Selected Shorts was conceived with a simple premise: take great stories by well-known and emerging writers and have them performed by terrific actors of stage and screen. Featuring stories around a lively theme, the favorite works of a guest author, or a special collaboration, each Selected Shorts event is a unique night of literature in performance.

Actors subject to change.
