What’s in your handbag? If you’re Grandmother Zofia, it could be literally the entire world. That’s the premise of Kelly Link’s charming, evocative, and just slightly sinister story “The Faery Handbag,” which is this year’s One City One Story selection. Come discuss the story’s themes of family history, secrets, everyday magic, and belief in the unknown with other Boston-area readers, and with Link herself. Inside Arts editor and facilitator extraordinaire Alicia Anstead will lead the discussion; tweet her your questions and thoughts ahead of time at @1city1story! Haven’t picked up your copy of the story yet? Swing by the BBF info tent to pick one up—they’re the perfect size to slip into a pocket or, yes, a handbag. Sponsored by BookBub.
