Stories on Stage Sacramento
Friday, February 23, CLARA, 7 p.m., $10 suggested donation
It’s one thing to hear the emotion of fictional characters through an audiobook, but it’s another experience to see a short fiction come to life on stage. Stories on Stage Sacramento is a volunteer-run effort to present rich literary fiction read by actors. This kickoff to the 2018 season will feature stories written by Anne Raeff (pictured), who often draws on her family’s history as refugees from the Holocaust, and Mira T. Lee, who recently published her first novel, Everything Here is Beautiful. Stories on Stage readings are scheduled bi-monthly through October, with a showcase featuring Los Rios Writers in September. 1425 24th Street, www.storiesonstagesacramento.com.
