An Evening with Nathan Englander 
      An Evening with Nathan Englander will be held 7:30 - 9 p.m. October 29 at Temple B'nai Israel, 3700 North Rodney Parham Road.  Mr. Englander is an award-winning author who published his first short story collection, For the Relief of Unbearable Urges, in 1999.  Since its publication, Nathan has received a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Bard Fiction Prize, and four of his short stories have appeared in editions of
