Today I am lucky enough to provide a space for Raki Kopernik’s book launch for her most recent title, The Things You Left, from Unsolicited Press! I got to interview her and talk about her new book and her writing process. I even got a little sneak preview of what you can expect to find in her book through a captivating reading of her story, “Homely.”
Raki is a queer, Jewish fiction and poetry writer. Her memoir, The Memory House (The Muriel Press 2019), was a finalist for the Red Hen Press Nonfiction Award and is a 2020 finalist for the Minnesota Book Award. Her work has appeared innumerous publications and has been shortlisted and nominated for several other awards including, the Thirty West Chapbook Contest, the Black River Chapbook Contest, the Glimmer Train Short Story Award, and the Pushcart Prize for fiction. The Things You Left is her first short story collection.
