Lydia Millet and Kate Bernheimer: Modern Fairy Tales

One Book, One Chicago teams up with the Chicago Humanities Festival to present a rare opportunity for grown ups to celebrate this monstrous and magical literary form--the modern fairy tale. Join Lydia Millet (How the Dead Dream) and Kate Bernheimer (Horse, Flower, Bird and editor of My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me: Forty New Fairy Tales) for readings and conversation about these dark and delightful stories.
