CHAVISA WOODS with MATTILDA BERNSTEIN SYCAMORE at Hugo House

 

Celebrating the launch of her critically acclaimed collection of stories, Things to Do When You’re Goth in the Country (Seven Stories Press), Chavisa Woods joins series host and curator Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore for the last CONTAGIOUS EXCHANGES of 2017. Things to Do When You’re Goth in the Country is a surreal and sardonic look into the heart of the rural poor. National Book Foundation award winner Samantha Hunt calls the book, “Murakami meets the meth heads.”

“This is one of the best short story collections I’ve read in years, and it should be required reading for anyone who’s trying to understand America in 2017.” –Paul La Farge.

Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore is most recently the author of a memoir, The End of San Francisco, which won a Lambda Literary Award, and the editor of Why Are Faggots So Afraid of Faggots?, an American Library Association Stonewall Honor Book.
