Twenty-two short stories by today's most accomplished fiction writers are showcased in Writers Harvest, the third Share Our Strength (SOS) fiction anthology. When William H. Shore founded SOS in 1984, he envisioned a fight against hunger that utilized the talents of those who know food best, namely chefs and restaurateurs. Gradually his vision expanded to involve other artists and professionals, including the writers who have donated their work - stories diverse in style, mood, and theme - to this collection. Royalties from the sale of Writers Harvest will benefit SOS's hunger-relief programs. Short stories by the best contemporary fiction writers, including Paul Auster, Clyde Edgerton, Pam Houston, Randall Kenan, Barbara Kingsolver, John L Heureux, Reynolds Price, Lee Smith, and Tobias Wolff, are showcased here. Royalties from this book aid Share Our Strength, one of the nation s largest antihunger organizations.'
