Follow these two naive Midwestern girls on their journey from Wisconsin to Washington in 1994. It's a story about friendship, freedom, and grunge.
I'll be presenting the story at the Richard Hugo House on Feb. 8, 2013.
About the Hugo Literary Series Beginning in October 2007, the Hugo Literary Series sits at the core of Hugo House's commitment to foster new writing. The series consists of four events per season, with each event featuring three writers and a songwriter or band, all commissioned to create new writing and songs from a theme and writing prompt cooked up by Hugo House's staff.
The nights are collages of unexpected styles and different points of view, and the writers and musicians are encouraged to work without a sense of obligation, censorship or stylistic frame. No one at Hugo House sees or hears the work before it is read or sung at each event.
At the Hugo Literary Series, you will meet writers willing to take risks, to work without the safety net of editors, publishers or reviewers affirming the work before they stand in front of an audience and read it aloud. They are writers who share the exhilaration of creating something new and sharing it with an audience for the first time before the work appears in a book, between the glossy covers of a magazine or within the shrink wrap of a CD.
