This year's event was held during First Thursday, Jan. 5, and drew a crowd of usually shy writers into their well-deserved spotlight—for a little while at least. Friends, family and literary supporters packed the bookshop as nine of the 10 Fiction 101 finalists stepped up to read their award-winning stories and share a little insight into the motivations behind their work.
While something like this is usually a you-miss-it, you-miss-out situation, you're in luck. BW diligently recorded the event so you can share in its glory—or relive its greatness.
