Story/Teller: Wild Swims with Dorthe Nors, Merritt Wever, and Brigid Hughes

February 3, 2021 via Zoom

Emmy Award-winning actor Merritt Wever performed a dramatic reading of a story from Dorthe Nors’s Wild Swims: Stories. After the performance, Brigid Hughes, founding editor of literary magazine A Public Space, interviewed Nors on the collection.

Written with the same darkly comic concision her fans love, stories from Wild Swims have already been featured in the New Yorker, Harper’s magazine, Tin House, and A Public Space, ahead of its February 2, 2021 paperback release. Nors’s Mirror, Shoulder, Signal was a finalist for the Man Booker International Prize in 2017.

Co-presented with A Public Space and The Consulate General of Denmark in New York.
