Miriam Karmel


This event is co-sponsored by the L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library.

Author Miriam Karmel will make an unapologetic case for the short story as a form that is neither a novel in miniature, nor a prelude to something big.

>> Our book sales committee will have copies of Subtle Variations and Other Stories available for purchase at this event. Please join us for an autographing session following the presentation.

MIRIAM KARMEL’s stories have appeared in Bellevue Literary Review, Water~Stone Review, Passages North, Coe Review, Moment Magazine, and more. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including Minnesota Monthly’s Tamarack Award for her short story, The Queen of Love. Her story, The King of Marvin Gardens was anthologized in Milkweed Edition’s Fiction on a Stick (2008).  Being Esther (Milkweed Editions), her debut novel, was published in 2013.

Subtle Variations and Other Stories (Holy Cow! Press), was published in October 2017. It was the winning selection in the inaugural First Fiction contest, sponsored by Holy Cow! Press of Duluth, Minnesota and the Lindquist & Vennum Foundation.
