With cookies in one hand and coffee in the other, cozy up to the fire for six weeks of free readings. Gearing up for its 24th season, the Fireside Reading Series is one of the oldest and most popular events of The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library. The series highlights the work of some of Minnesota’s finest writers who have published a new work in the previous year. Miriam Karmel’s Subtle Variations and Other Stories (winner of the “First Fiction” prize from Holy Cow! Press) is a masterful collection of stories exploring topics of marriage, divorce, old age and motherhood with gentle humor and insightfulness. Filled with loss and echoing grief, the stories hold equal measures of resilience and joy, gratitude and pride. Karmel also wrote a novel, Being Esther, and has received numerous awards for her short fiction.
