Celebrate the release of Melody Mansfield’s new short story collection, A Bug Collection, a humorous and heartbreaking look at the complexities of the human condition through the compound eyes of bugs.

Thais Miller, her former creative writing student, will introduce the reading and read from her latest work.

A Bug Collection is not for the squeamish. These stories about love, death, and the webby, tenuous intersections between the two take a humorous and heartbreaking look at the complexities of human life through the compound eyes of bugs. When a lone mayfly has a painful revelation about the ephemerality of her own existence, it sets in motion a chain of revelations by more bugs—beetles, katydids, earthworms, ants, and a host of other critters who force us to consider what it means to be fully alive in a world of dung.
