Regina Louise gave us brilliant readings from her wonderfully touching memoir Somebody's Someone, about an abused foster child's search for love, and the forthcoming sequel. Terry Bisson, most versatile of storytellers, told us what happened when Billy's family encountered a magic midget. Rachel Howard, by popular request, enchanted us with a scene from her memoir The Lost Night about the relatively idyllic summer preceding her father's murder. Matthew Iribarne read from his novel Sacred Heart, about a priest's terminally ill father who is planning to jump into the Grand Canyon. Ransom Stephens, a man known for performing measurements that test whether or not there is unexplained stuff in the universe, described the events that lead a father to kick down his daughter's door.
