Fiction Reading by Hanna Pylvainen

A graduate of the MFA program at the University of Michigan, Hanna Pylväinen is the author of We Sinners, a collection of stories about the Rovaniemi family, members of an ultraconservative Lutheran sect known as Laestadianism. About We Sinners, NBA winner Jaimy Gordon writes: “In a debut collection of dazzling economy, precision, and reach, Hanna Pylväinen explores a familiar yet unfamiliar world . . . with immense sensitivity to her characters, and a surprisingly light, deft touch.” Pylväinen was a fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown and has been the recipient of residences at Yaddo and the MacDowell Colony.
