TWENTY TWENTY: A STORIES ON STAGE SACRAMENTO ANTHOLOGY
This will be an in-store event and we’ll also live-stream it via Instagram that day.
Twenty Twenty: A Stories on Stage Sacramento Anthology includes 43 stories inspired by a year like no other, 2020. Essays and short stories from Northern California authors are organized under the themes Masks, Resilience, Monsters, Kinship, and Time, and touch many aspects of a year that proved catastrophic beyond anyone’s imagining. The devastating toll of Covid-19, life under quarantine, the closure of schools and businesses, the murder of George Floyd, wildfires that swept the West, and more, all are touched on by diverse voices and points of view.
Award-winning, acclaimed authors and SOSS guest authors Karen Bender, Anita Felicelli, Joan Frank, Debra Gwartney, Sands Hall, Pamela Houston, Vanessa Hua, Joshua Mohr, and Peter Orner, contributed pieces in the anthology, adding their voices to the Northern California authors who responded to the October 2020 submission call: 2020, You Lived It. Did You Write It?
