Meet Jimmy Fox

Nothing Brave Here
by Joan Cenedella

Book Launch!
Book Launch in NYC: October 27, 2013, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
203 West 86th Street, Apt. 1110

Lovers of the short story will marvel at the range and depth of this collection. The stories in Nothing Brave Here introduce compelling characters from differing backgrounds and stages of life, each on his or her way to someplace new. They do their best, and even when that best is not quite good enough, you will want to know them; their solutions to their predicaments are smart, surprising, natural. While varied in form and content, Cenedella’s stories reliably engage our insight and compassion.

A Gallery of Readers Anthology


An Introduction

For more than twenty years, Carol Edelstein and Robin Barber have led writing workshops in Northampton, MA, and sponsored an accompanying reading series for participants of the workshops.

In 2011, A Gallery of Readers became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit association, with the mission to stimulate interest in, and access to, literature written by emerging creative writers. The association conducts educational workshops for writers, develops and promotes opportunities to enlarge the audience for their art; publishes books and broadsides; and ensures access to such opportunities inclusively without restrictions based on gender, orientation, age, education, or income levels; and to perform any other acts necessary to achieving these goals.
