We are pleased to announce that the 2014 One City One Story is Jennifer Haigh’s “Sublimation,“ a story that explores the intergenerational dynamics in one family as they tackle topics of gender nonconformity, emotional connection, and the existential crises that accompany aging.
We hope that you will enjoy this thought-provoking story by acclaimed author Jennifer Haigh and that it inspires reflection and dialogue within our Greater Boston communities. Please join us for our One City One Story Town Hall on the day of the festival to engage with Jennifer Haigh and to share your own ideas about the story.
We would also like to thank Dunkin’ Donuts, which has generously funded the One City One Story project for the second consecutive year, and Zipcar, whose support allows us to distribute copies of the stories throughout the neighborhoods of Boston.
