The type of evening that both literature nerds and theatre geeks can get really excited about: the always wonderful Selected Shorts has asked authors Junot Diaz and Karen Russell to pick stories form their latest collections to be read live by an actor or actress. John Leguizamo will be among the readers taking a shot at breathing new life into the work of one of the two critically acclaimed authors who both excel in the short form in a way very few of their contemporaries do.
