“Read Write Now” is an event series focused on the craft of writing. Join Old Town Books and National Book Award-nominated writer Carmen Maria Machado in conversation with bestselling writer and editor Nicole Chung on Saturday, Feb. 9 at the Athenaeum. They’ll discuss the craft of memoir writing with a particular focus on Machado’s forthcoming “In the Dream House: A Memoir” (Graywolf, 2019) — a bold dissection of the mechanisms and cultural representations of psychological abuse.
Ticket price includes one pre-order for a signed copy of Machado’s In the Dream House, which will be published and available for pick up at Old Town Books in fall 2019.
The talk will be followed by a book signing of Carmen Machado’s short story collection Her Body and Other Parties (Graywolf, 2017) and Nicole Chung’s All You Can Ever Know (Catapult, 2018).
