From The Hinge: Thanks to Lookout Books, The Hinge is hosting an online discussion of Edith Pearlman’s “The Story” from her collection Binocular Vision. She will answer questions online April 17 from 3-4.  Check out the story and join the discussion at the link below!

Pearlman’s Binocular Vision is a collection of new and selected stories published by North Carolina’s own Lookout Books. Binocular Vision was an incredible debut for Lookout: it won the 2011 National Book Critics Circle Award for fiction and was named a finalist for the National Book Award, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and The Story Prize. Lookout’s executive director, Emily L. Smith, will be in attendance at the Regulator on April 17, so this is also an opportunity to find out more about a great new press whose mission is “to identify and champion overlooked gems by both debut and established authors.”

We hope you’ll stop by hingeliterary.org this week to participate in our first ever online story discussion. And to read more, stop by the Regulator to pick up a copy of Binocular Vision or to get a free bound copy of another Pearlman story, “ToyFolk,” and a reading guide printed by Lookout. See you soon!

Last night Edith read from Binocular Vision at Park Road Books as part of her North Carolina Tour. After reading she answered over twenty questions from the audience! Do you have any for her?

Can’t wait to see you all there!
