Guess That Opening Sentence! with the Authors Guild & One Story

Can you name a famous novel based on the first sentence? Join Paul Morris and Ryan Fox of the Authors Guild and One Story editors Patrick Ryan and Lena Valencia for an evening of literary trivia and prizes. We’ll read the opening sentences from well-known novels, you guess the novel. Come prepared to quiz the crowd on your own favorite opening, if you’d like, or select one at random to read aloud from our first-sentence fishbowl, and be entered into a raffle to win a pair of tickets to the One Story Debutante Ball on May 12 courtesy of the Authors Guild! (Plus a free issue of One Story for each participant!)
