kgb this coming tuesday - BE THERE

I'll be reading from my memoir-in-progress which has alternately been a novel-in-progress, then a memoir, then a novel, then, well, you get the picture.

I've been working on it for a while now (oh about 4 years...) and I don't think I've read any part of it in public! So come see me shake in my boots.

from our lovely curator Felicia Sullivan:
Join us for an exciting night of non fiction from New York's premiere emerging writers who will share their works in progress!

Meredith Phillips has written for publications including the Believer, Time Out New York, the Columbia Journal, and Texas Monthly, and she is the reading series coordinator for One Story Magazine. Meredith lives in Brooklyn with one cat and hopefully no rodents.

Katy Brennan is a freelance writer. Her work-in-progress, Our Proudest Moments: A Memoir of Sisterhood, is a sort of modern day Pride and Prejudice where questions of "the socially constructed self" become issues of post-Feminist ambition, post-Freudian psychology, and many forms of addiction. In the aftermath of her eldest sister's death from an overdose of heroin and cocaine, she and her surviving sisters discover that the key to surviving this "family disease" may be something to which they are not genetically predisposed—pride.

Alison Weaver recently graduated from the New School University with an MFA in Creative Nonfiction. She is the co-editor of the literary journal Pindeldyboz and volunteers as a mentor at The PEN American Center Prison Writing Program. She is currently at work on a memoir titled, Talking Out Of Turn, and lives in New York City.
