Please join us on Saturday, February 8th at 7:00 pm when we welcome Sadie Hoagland to City Books. Refreshments will be served. Hoagland’s new collection of short stories, American Grief in Four Stages explores the possibility of elegy and the inability of our culture to communicate grief or sympathy outside of cliche. Hoagland is based in Louisiana. She has a PhD in fiction from the University of Utah and an MA in Creative Writing/Fiction from UC Davis. She is a former editor of Quarterly West, and currently teaches fiction at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. For a more complete bio, click here.
