Join us for a fiction reading and book signing as the Literary House Press releases a special, limited-edition letterpress chapbook, Worth Our Breath, by James Magruder, including original illustrations by local artist Stuart Cawley.

A Baltimore-based fiction writer, playwright, and translator, Magruder’s adaptations of works by Marivaux, Molière, Gozzi, Hofmannsthal, Lesage, and Dickens have been produced on and off-Broadway, across the country, and in Germany and Japan. His debut novel, Sugarless, was a Lambda Award finalist and shortlisted for the 2010 William Saroyan International Writing Prize. His linked story collection, Let Me See It, was published by TriQuarterly Books/Northwestern University Press in June 2014. He teaches dramaturgy at Swarthmore College.
