Hats Off! to Clare Beams whose short-story collection We Show What We Have Learned (Lookout Books, 2016) is a finalist for the PEN/Bingham Prize for Debut Fiction and the Young Lions Fiction Award. “Beams is an expert at providing odd and surprising details that make her stories come alive," says Publishers Weekly, "and the result is a powerful collection about what we need from others and, in turn, what we can offer others of ourselves.”
