May is National Short Story Month (did you know that? We didn’t know that), so it’s only fitting that this week’s Wine & Sign Fridays author at Bookmark It should be David James Poissant, here to rep his award-winning collection of short stories, The Heaven of Animals.

That book, published last year by Simon & Schuster, has been going gangbusters – tonight Poissant will be fresh off a book tour of France for the French translation, and gearing up for a tour of Italy for the Italian edition forthcoming in October.



In the meantime he’s hard at work on his next book for Simon & Schuster, a novel called Class, Order, Family. No pubdate has been announced for that one, anxious as we all are to read it. Maybe you should take the opportunity at this casual evening hangout to prod Poissant, ever so gently, for a day to circle on the calendar. We’re sure he won’t mind. 

6-8 p.m. Friday, May 29 | Bookmark It, East End Market, 3201 Corrine Drive | bookmarkitorlando.com | free
