The hit public radio and podcast series returns to the University at Albany with a program of dazzling and original short fiction performed by actors Patricia Kalember (The Tick), Sonia Manzano (Sesame Street), Bhavesh Patel (The Good Wife), and more. In honor of our 35th anniversary, Selected Shorts commissioned 35 brand-new stories by literary luminaries, and they're bringing a special selection to the NYS Writers Institute in celebration of this unique and delightful series.
Our greatest actors transport us through the magic of fiction — one short story at a time.
