Melissa Fraterrigo - Local Author

Melissa Fraterrigo, Author of "The Longest Pregnancy: Stories, will be at the Lansing Public Library on Thursday, June 8, 2006 at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room. This collection of stories confronts the problems of modern day life through fantastical means, many of them set in a recognizable Midwest.

The bold characters in these fourteen stories are humorous, grotesque, and painfully human. In the title story, a recovering alcoholic courts a woman who is six years pregnant. "The Shark Swimmers" tells the tale of a teenage girl who squanders her coming-of-age years in the limelight of a water show for a thrill-seeking audience. While many of the stories are wildly fantastic, readers will also be riveted by the human complexities and hope that run throughout "The Longest Pregnancy."

Join us for this presentation by a Lansing native! Everyone is welcome!
