From Dorothy, a unique newer "publishing project [that] is dedicated to works of fiction or near fiction or about fiction, mostly by women," comes Chicago-based writer and performer Suzanne Scanlon's brilliant novel of fragmented tales, Promising Young Women. "Suzanne Scanlon enters the inverted space of grief and near-madness with courage, intelligence, and witand with a small, sharp light for us to follow." – Dawn Raffel. "Promising Young Women digs deep and speaks to us all about how we compose our individual lives in the wilds of modern times." – Elizabeth Evans. Also part of this evening is esteemed Seattle writer Rebecca Brown, author of acclaimed and award-winning works such as Gifts of the Body, American Romances, and The Haunted House, and a writer whose shares affinities with that of Suzanne Scanlon's. This should be a good, rich evening.
