A new short story by Lecturer in Creative Writing Daphne Kalotay is the focus of One City One Story — Boston’s annual citywide reading event held in conjunction with the Boston Book Festival, held October 28th.

Kalotay’s story, “Relativity” — which has not been previously published — tells of Robert, a social worker who provides end-of-life care to Holocaust survivors. The story is available to download in 7 languages, as well as in audio form, online at

The goal of Boston’s One City One Story is to make a short story available to all, free of charge, to spread the joy of reading for pleasure among teens and adults and to create a community around a shared reading experience.

Daphne Kalotay’s books include Calamity and Other Stories, shortlisted for the 2005 Story Prize, and the national and international bestseller Russian Winter, which won the 2011 Writers’ League of Texas Fiction Prize. Her bestselling novel, Sight Reading, was the winner of the 2014 New England Society Book Award in Fiction. She is currently completing a second fiction collection, which includes “Relativity.”
