Paris Writing Workshop hosts Literary Death Match

Paris Writing Workshop partnered with Literary Death Match to bring the international reading series to Paris on July 27. Hosted by LDM-founder Adrian Todd Zuniga at the historic Studio des Ursulines, the evening pitted Paris-based writers Adam Biles, Kevin Dolgin and Linda Hervieux, and LA/NYC/DC's Kseniya Melnik, against each other in lively competition. Judging the readings were PAA nonfiction teacher Dinah Lenney, author/HGTV personality Adrian Leeds, and British comedian Luke Thompson.

Congratulations to the night's champion Adam Biles, whose new book "Feeding Time" will be released in 2016 from Galley Beggar Press, and to finalist Linda Hervieux, whose book "Forgotten: The Untold Story of D-Day's Black Heroes" is due out from HarperCollins in October 2015. Special thanks to Stacey Resnikoff (PAA '12-'15) for her many months of work in coordinating the event.
