Symphony Space in N.Y. inaugurates its 14th season of "Selected Shorts: A Celebration of the Short Story" Jan. 28 with readings from the work of Bernard Malamud by two prominent Broadway actresses.
Tony winners Linda Lavin (currently on Broadway in The Diary of Anne Frank) and Marian Seldes (Three Tall Women and the recent Broadway production of Ivanov) will read three Malamud stories: "The First Seven Years," "Angel Levine" and "Rembrandt's Hat."
In addition, writer Alfred Kazin and Malamud's publisher, Robert Giroux, will speak about the author's life and body of work.
The program, like others in the series, will be taped for broadcast at a later date on National Public Radio.
The reading is at 6:30 PM at Symphony Space, Broadway and 95th St. For tickets, $17, call (212) 864-5400. -- By Rebecca Paller
