NEW YORK (AP) — Jim Dale, the Grammy Award-winning reader of the Harry Potter audiobooks, will be among the performers participating in a celebration of Hemingway, Chekhov and other short story masters.

‘‘Short-Short Stories From Around the World’’ will be held the afternoon of March 28 at Saint Peter’s Church in midtown Manhattan and will feature readings by Dale and actors Brian F. O’Byrne, Tammy Grimes and Frances Sternhagen.

The free event is sponsored by TIPA (Toward International Peace through the Arts), a nonprofit organization.

Editor's note: Dale is the voice behind the American version of the Harry Potter books. Stephen Fry reads the British version of the series.
