Orner comes to Stories on Stage Davis

By
From page A9 | November 06, 2013 |

Author Peter Orner will appear at Stories on Stage Davis for a reading from his new collection, “Last Car Over the Sagamore Bridge,” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Pence Gallery, 212 D St. Doors open at 7 p.m. The suggested donation is $5.

Orner has included 52 narratives, many only a few pages long, in his newest book. “Denny Coughlin: In Memory,” one of the stories from the collection that will be featured, is about the rivalry between two prison hockey teams and a makeshift match that takes a tragic turn.

Orner, a professor of creative writing at San Francisco State University and a 2006 Guggenheim fellow, is collaborating on a film adaptation of his work with director Rob Jones and actor Ed Asner.

“River Road,” by emerging author Ruth Blank, also will be presented on Nov. 9. “River Road” explores the unexpected intimacy that develops between a shopkeeper and a cook with a checkered past. The story takes place amid the chaos of an accident scene on a San Joaquin Delta bridge and is infused with descriptions of first responders, small-town gossip and the smell of ripening tomatoes.

The evening’s stories will be presented by two local actors, Roberta Stuart and Phillip Larrea.

Stories on Stage Davis accepts submissions of short stories 3,000 to 5,000 words in length and written résumés or video links from actors who are interested in reading and interpreting fictional works.
