Lauri Anderson, the winner of the 2011 Tobias Wolff Award for Fiction, was recently interviewed on NPR's All Things Considered. During this interview, Anderson discussed her prize-winning story, "A Saint and a Criminal," which won NPR's three-minute fiction contest. She also mentioned her recent win of Bellingham Review's annual award in fiction.
In addition, Bethany Carlson, a finalist in the 2011 49th Parallel Award for Poetry, read her poem "If truth is a dreamcatcher, then" on WIFU, a local NPR station in Bloomington, Indiana. Both Anderson and Carlson's works will appear in Issue 64 of Bellingham Review.
