Seattle author Calvin Gimpelevich reads from Invasions (Instar Books), a collection of fifteen short stories about transness, class, bodies, and power within powerlessness. Michelle Tea writes: “Invasions blew my mind. Flipping between speculative worlds deeply rooted in realness and emotion and more familiar landscapes that tip on the edges of personal apocalypses, Gimpelevich's writing is strong and sure, taking us places we really haven't been. I'm hooked.”
Calvin Gimpelevich’s stories have appeared in Electric Literature, Plentitude, and elsewhere. He is the recipient of awards from Artist Trust, Jack Straw Cultural Center, and 4Culture and is a founding member of the Lion’s Main Art Collective.
