The New York Center for Independent Publishing and FinePrint Literary Management will host a reading and reception for the winner and three finalists of the first Fulton Prize sponsored by the Adirondack Review.

The Fulton Prize winner is Sean Ferrell of Brooklyn for his short story BUILDING AN ELEPHANT, described as a cross between Alice Munro and Stephen King.

Diane Goettel, managing editor of the Adirondack Review said “We’re very pleased to have such a powerful and imaginative story as the winner of the first annual Fulton Prize.”

Mr. Ferrell said “I'm thrilled to be the winner of the first Fulton Prize. The Adirondack Review is a wonderful journal and I couldn't be happier that they are giving my story a home. I was shocked and surprised when I heard from Diane that she had chosen my story. It's exciting to find out that my slightly off-kilter fiction has an audience."
The event is free. Reservations are not required.
