Join us to discuss Jody Lisberger’s book Remember Love published by Fleur-de-Lis Press. Jody Lisberger will be joined by Debra Valencia-Laver in conversation.

From Amazon:

Jody Lisberger’s provocatively titled story collection will make readers wonder just how and when they should ‘remember love.’ As trauma, as what persists, as what confines, as what liberates, as what disappoints, as what we live for? And what shapes do our loves assume in all their infinite variety? Not only the human content but the aesthetic of these accomplished stories makes them worthy of profound attention. –Sena Jeter Naslund, Editor, Fleur-de-Lis Press

Read a sample of the book or read one (or both!) of Jody’s short stories: In the Mercy of Water in Fugue and Crucible in Michigan Quarterly Review.

Coffee and light refreshments will be served. There will be lots of time for questions!
