A Travel Guide for Reckless Hearts book coverTomorrow, Friday Sept. 18th at 4:30 p.m. on FM 107 in the Twin Cities, N. M. Kelby, author of A Travel Guide for Reckless Hearts will be a guest on the popular radio show,  Lori & Julia. N. M. is a former broadcast journalist in the area who has since written several widely acclaimed novels and now an intimate and heartwarming collection of short stories. To quote Pulitzer Prize winning author Robert Olen Butler:

“N. M. Kelby has long been one of my favorite writers, and her new story collection, A Travel Guide for Reckless Hearts, is the sweet, pure, hilarious, sneakily profound essence of her. We ache and we laugh: this is the experience of living in the 21st century.”

The Utne Reader Great Writing blog recently began a lively discussion on the future of the short story collection in print and online. To quote N. M. Kelby, “short stories are the new black because they are the perfect read for the digital age!”
