Kathryn Erbe joined for the third time a fundraiser reading after Mystery of the Mind (2008) and the WordTheatre event in Soho House last year where she read a story by Mary Gordon.
Unfortunately I saw yesterday the first tweet about Kathryn's attendance for Speaking in Tongues for the first time. My Kathryn article overview page didn't pick up one of the many articles about the WordTheatre event of last Saturday. :o(
The evening benefited endowments for the Pushcart Prize, an annual literary project that each year honors the best poetry short fiction, essays, and other short works published in small presses. This year is the 35th anniversary of the Pushcart Prize, considered "one of the most important publishing projects in American History" by "Publishers Weekly."
Best Books In America: The Pushcart Prize
July 21, 2011 by Allyson Zacharoff
What does one-half of a star television duo do after her stint on a 10-year series ends? Support fabulous writers, of course.
At least, that’s what Kathryn Erbe, who played detective Alexandra Eames on the hit show “Law and Order: Criminal Intent” for the last decade before its conclusion earlier this summer, has chosen to do. This well-known actress has signed on to appear at a fundraiser for the Pushcart Prize anthology of literature at Guild Hall this Saturday, July 23 at 8 p.m.
For those who know Erbe, her decision to appear at the event may not come as too much of a surprise. This extremely sweet woman describes herself as an “avid reader,” and shares that she’s “just so happy to encourage what they do.”
The widely respected Pushcart Prize writing collection has been published annually by the Puschart Press since 1976. This small press combs through nominations submitted by literary magazines and book editors to select the best pieces of writing available. These submissions include everything from a single poem to a chapter from a novel, and with such loose requirements for its pieces the press can have a wide selection of excellent literature from which to choose. Their high standards ensure an exemplary compilation every year that readers everywhere look forward to reading.
