Join us when Erica Plouffe Lazure reads from her short story collections: Proof of Me and Sugar Mountain.

Erica Plouffe Lazure’s short story collection, Proof of Me, was awarded the New American Press fiction prize in March 2022. She is the author of two flash fiction chapbooks Sugar Mountain (Ad Hoc Press, 2020) and Heard Around Town (Arcadia, 2015) and her fiction has appeared in McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern, the Greensboro Review, American Short Fiction, Carve Magazine, and elsewhere.

Praise for Proof of Me and Other Stories: “Written with deep emotional intelligence, these are indelible portraits of people seeking grace in all the wrong places…Lazure’s sensitive portrayal of this specific American locale deserves the attention of readers from all over the map.”
Jean Chen Ho, New York Times

Praise for Sugar Mountain: “A stunning sequence of stories about childhood shot through with irresistible yearning, beauty and humour.It’s written in a freewheeling prose that unfurls with detail after gorgeous detail piling up in the sentences. Quirky behaviour, teenage mischief, letdowns, unfulfilled dreams, romance – this novella really gets to the heart of what childhood feels like.”
Michael Loveday, author of Three Men on the Edge
