Rachel Cantor to Read February 16th

Join us this February 16th at 7:30 p.m. as esteemed author, Rachel Cantor, will read as part of the Mary E. Rolling Reading Series in Paterno Library’s Foster Auditorium.

Cantor is the author of two novels, A Highly Unlikely Scenario and Good on Paper, both published by Melville House. Her stories have appeared in such publications as Paris Review, One Story, Ninth Letter, The Kenyon Review, and New England Review. Some of her stories have also been anthologized, nominated for the Pushcart Prize, short-listed by the O. Henry Awards and Best American Short Stories, and awarded runner-up Bridport and Graywolf/SLS Prizes. In addition to her awards, she has received scholarships, fellowships from artist colonies in both the United States and foreign countries, and fellowships to the Bread Loaf and Sewanee Writing Conferences.

The New York Times praised her most recent novel, Good on Paper, saying, “Cantor is unafraid of asking big questions explicitly, like whether fidelity—to texts or to people—is possible.” The Boston Globe said of the novel: “It is not often that a novel comes along that is laugh-out-loud hilarious and thought-provokingly philosophical. Good on Paper is both.” And finally, writer Emily St. John Mandel (Station Eleven) called it, “sharp, witty, and immensely entertaining.”
