Storytelling: Jodi Angel

As part of the exhibition "Vocabularies of Metaphor: More Stories," Hosfelt Gallery, San Francisco is pleased to host a series of evenings of writers reading their short stories.

Jodi Angel's first collection of short stories, "The History of Vegas," was selected as a 2005 San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of the Year. Her short story "Portions" received a Special Mention for the 2007 Pushcart Prize. She teaches fiction writing and short story literature at UC Davis. The story she will be reading is "Field Dressing," from her new collection in progress.

The "Story Telling" program was curated by longtime arts and literary editor for San Francisco magazine, Pamela Feinsilber, who is now working on assorted arts ventures, among them consulting on literary and nonfiction manuscripts and proposals, leading a monthly book group and author discussion at Book Passage, and freelance writing and editing. Her essay "The Long and Short of Lit," championing the short story, appeared in the July issue of San Francisco magazine and led to an hour-long discussion on Michael Krasny's KQED-FM radio program Forum.
