|The Totally Unknown Writers Festival 2001: Stories|
The nine stories read at the 2001 Totally Unknown Writers Festival, including: Damina Mangat’s "Inside India," about a trip to India to meet her grandfather who sees little role for women in this badly dated world;
Virginia Ashberry’s "Dinner and a Movie," a hilarious/heartbreaking account about being stood up;
Maria Mguyen’s "Precious Moments," a sad story of the persecution suffered by a Vietnamese girl in a Canadian middle school;
Adam Giles’ "Christine," a scary piece about the absurdity of unrequited love among empty suburban shopping mall parking lots;
Keith Haartman’s "You’re Doing Great," an x-rated account of one night from the disastrous northern Quebec tour of a down-and-out prog rock band:
Susan Higgin’s" Why I Hate Tang," a child’s sharply-told tale of life with an alchoholic;
Chinedu Ukabam’s "Black Boy," about a young Nigerian immigrant and the battles he fought, and won, on the playground of his New Hampshire junior high school.
