Literary quarterly publishes Professor Elizabeth McCracken's story 'Property'

Congratulations to Professor Elizabeth McCracken, whose short story "Property" appears in the current issue of the British literary quarterly Granta. To promote each issue, Granta hosts a week of events featuring the magazine's writers and editors as they discuss the issue's pieces and central ideas. Professor McCracken will appear at several of next week's events in London, including a conversation at the British Library with Salman Rushdie, Richard Russo, A.L. Kennedy, and Granta editor John Freeman. The July 12 event will also commemorate the official launch of Granta's online archive. See a complete schedule of the week's events here.
