Garnett Kilberg Cohen talks about her book How We Move the Air. (Cover Art from the book)

For writer Garnett Kilberg Cohen, loss is a ripe topic for literature. After all, it is one of the few things we can rely on in life.

So in her collection of short stories How We Move the Air, Garnett Kilberg Cohen explores how death is an event that can linger.

One by one, the stories track the impact of one man’s death on his family, friends and acquaintances.

Garnett Kilberg Cohen is a professor of writing and literature at Columbia College Chicago.

Her collection of stories is How We Move the Air. She’ll read from the collection on November 11th at Loyola University’s Piper Hall.
