Claire Rudy Foster with Richard Chiem

Queer, non-binary trans writer Claire Rudy Foster’s writing on sex, identity, relationships and recovery have appeared in The New York Times, Washington Post and McSweeney’s. Recently featured on The Rumpus and The Good Man Project, they will read from Shine of the Ever (Interlude Press), a short story collection and “literary mixtape of queer voices out of 1990s Portland.”

“The characters in Foster’s fiction are all achingly lonely and the victims of human error, yes—but they’re also miracles of endurance whose devastations, large and small, illuminate the better parts of ourselves.” —Benjamin Percy. They are also the author of I’ve Never Done This Before.

Reading with Claire Rudy Foster tonight is Seattle writer, Richard Chiem, whose debut novel, King of Joy, was published earlier this year by Soft Skull Press.
