Rebecca Brown with Jennifer Borges Foster
We are thrilled to help welcome beloved Seattle writer and teacher Rebecca Brown’s much-awaited new work of fiction into the world this evening. Not Heaven, Somewhere Else: A Cycle of Stories, a beautiful edition from Tarpaulin Sky Press, gives us new work in the inimitable, striking voice Rebecca Brown writes in, and is known for around the world - she is one of the most internationally published writers around. She has received numerous distinctions and awards for her work, which includes American Romances, The Last Time I Saw You, The Dogs, The Gifts of the Body, and The Terrible Girls.
“A strange and wonderful first-person voice emerges from the stories of Rebecca Brown, who strips her language of convention to lay bare the ferocious rituals of love and need.” —The New York Times.
“One of the few truly original modern lesbian writers, one who constantly pushes both her own boundaries and those of her readers.” — San Francisco Chronicle.
With Rebecca Brown tonight, in conversation, is Seattle poet, book-maker, and literary press editor Jennifer Borges Foster.
