Why does some literature seem better when read aloud? That’s the question that Selected Shorts has been answering for almost twenty years on the stage and nationwide on public radio. We’ll spend this hour with Isaiah Sheffer, a founder and artistic director of Symphony Space in New York City, and director of Selected Shorts. Sheffer will read tonight as part of Arts and Letters Live’s “Texas Bound from Broadway: Food Fictions” event at the Dallas Theater Center. Selected Shorts airs on KERA 90.1 on Saturdays at 7pm.
