This annual celebration of the short story—part of a public-radio series—features Hollywood talent coming together to bring literary works to life. This year's theme is favorite leisure activities, so topics covered will include everything from knitting to sex. Hear actors like Leonard Nimoy and Anika Noni Rose breathing life into words from writers like Joyce Carol Oates and John Cheever; for one, Parker Posey will be reading the monologue of a wallflower in a bathroom by Dorothy Parker. Check the website for a full lineup for each weekend performance.
