Not many small-press books go into second printings, but Richard Chiem’s story collection You Private Person isn’t just any small-press book. Chiem writes in plain language that quivers with a slight magical jolt; a woman who walks through baggage claim is “still feeling the ghost of the airplane vibrating all around her.” To celebrate his book’s renewed life, Chiem is joined by poet Rauan Klassnik and author Willie Fitzgerald (cofounder of the Stranger Genius Award–nominated APRIL Festival), making this evening a buffet line of talented young literary men.
