Ronna Wineberg: Nine Facts That Can Change Your Life

It's easy to think of relationships as achievable life-fixtures — you shop around, you see something you like, you make it official, and then it's just there, sturdy and reliable, like a really good toaster. But, as anyone who's ever interacted with the human race knows, things are never quite that linear. Ronna Wineberg focuses on the constant state of flux between lovers, friends, and families in her new collection of short stories. Nine Facts That Can Change Your Life features fifteen vignettes about emotional mutability and the small, silent decisions that precipitate big changes — like the moment when one character, in the midst of an urgent, harried visit to an emergency room, decides she has to leave her husband, the true end before the divorce that follows. Tonight Wineberg discusses the book, joined in conversation by the author Donna Baier Stein.
