GUEST HOST: HOPE DAVIS

Escalation

In these stories, things are getting out of hand!

Description

Guest host Hope Davis presents two stories in which things get out of hand. Rumors and recriminations fly in “Belles Lettres,” by Nafissa Thompson-Spires, as rival mothers defend their daughters’ reputations at a posh school--at any cost. The readers are Eboni Booth and Shalewa Sharpe. And although Shirley Jackson is known best for creepy tales, we hear her lighter side in “About Two Nice People,” in which neighbors seem to be getting mixed messages from one another. The readers are Lilli Cooper, Ethan Slater, and Julie Halston.
