We asked some of Spokane’s most acclaimed writers to create new works of short fiction based on the theme of “The Fair.” Some writers tripped back to 1974 and visited Expo. Others have kicked up dust on the midways and in the barns of the county fair. Either way, they delivered. Ten writers. Ten stories. Ten weeks. In the coming weeks, you’ll be invited to read new works by Shawn Vestal, Bruce Holbert, Sharma Shields, Gregory Spatz, Kris Dinnison, Sam Ligon, Polly Buckingham, Shann Ray and Nance Van Winckel. We wrap things up on Sept. 7 with a new story from Jess Walter, the National Book Award finalist and New York Times best-selling author of “Beautiful Ruins.”
So sit back, relax, and enjoy.
