Hugo Literary Series: Viet Thanh Nguyen, Gabrielle Calvocoressi, Stacy D. Flood
Hugo House’s May run of the 2022 Hugo Literary Series concludes this evening with the apt theme of ‘The Time Tripper’ as ‘prompt’ for newly created work responding to the notion. On hand tonight will be Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen, author of The Sympathizer, The Refugees, Nothing Ever Dies, Chicken of the Sea (where last we saw him in-person, January 2020, with co-author/son Ellison), and, most recently, The Committed. Audre Lorde Award-winning poet Gabrielle Calvocoressi is the author of The Last Time I Saw Amelia Earhart, Apocalyptic Swing, and Rocket Fantastic. Stacy D. Flood is author of the brilliant novella, The Salt Fields, whose publication we helped celebrate. That said, it will be a night of Time Trapping, everyone with work to the occasion.
