I am pleased to announce that my short story, “Brand Values,” was performed by Maulik Pancholy (30 Rock, Star Trek: Discovery) as part of an evening of Selected Shorts. Special thanks to The Southampton Review for first publishing this story in 2014. Stay tuned for a recording of the broadcast!
Pancholy, by the way, does awesome work off-stage. He’s a committed anti-bullying advocate who has spoken out for broader representations for people of color in Hollywood and has been involved with several nonprofit social policy organizations. You might have heard about his resignation earlier this year from the President’s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, after policies from the current administration proved to be “diametrically opposite” to the group’s principles—including, of course, the U.S. executive order restricting travel from six majority Muslim countries, and proposals to cut funding for Sanctuary Cities.
