Carmen Maria Machado, author of the short story collection Her Body and Other Parties and the multi-genre (literally—each chapter is a different genre) memoir In the Dream House, among other works, will present a reading and join in conversation at Minneapolis College with Write Like Us mentor Taiwana Shambley. With lyrical prose and brutal vulnerability Machado’s writing has increased visibility of difficult topics not frequently covered in the queer narrative. The event will also be available online. THURS 4/27, 7 PM. Free.
