Town Hall Seattle says
Magazines have served as an important platform for short fiction in our country. This series encompasses three very different magazines which have published major works. The selections are intended to span different audiences and generations, and offer a fascinating journey through the diversity of American history and culture.

With both a strong print and internet presence, McSweeney's Quarterly Concern has been pushing the boundaries of the magazine form and exploring how it relates to other art forms. While publishing well known American writers as Jennifer Egan, Michael Chabon, and George Saunders, it also has an abiding and deep interest in international authors as well. Our selections range from Washington State’s own Jess Walter and the Anglo-African-American Zadie Smith, to Nyuol Lueth Tong, whose writing emerged from McSweeney’s South Sudanese fiction initiative.

* Jess Walter, “Statistical Abstract for my Hometown, Spokane, Washington” (2011)
* Zadie Smith, “The Girl With Bangs” (2001)
* Nyuol Lueth Tong, “The Bastard” (2013)
