Wed 28 Sept 530pm Public Library - ali smith - JacketAnnouncing the recipient of the Charleston Small Wonder Award for a Lifetime’s Excellence in Short Fiction

Dazzling in her daring and sheer inventive power, Ali Smith’s shape-shifting books alternate between novels and short story collections.  Already a multiple award winner (Whitbread, Goldsmiths, Costa, Baileys), her imagination and originality make her one of the most exciting writers of her generation.  Her most recent book, Public Library and other stories, is a campaigning collection on behalf of one of our most cherished and threatened public institutions.  Her forthcoming novel, Autumn, is the first of a planned quartet.  Chaired by Cathy Galvin, member of the Award’s Advisory Panel.
