Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance and Colby College Creative Writing Program

Given Auditorium, Bixler Art + Music Center, 5600 Mayflower Hill Drive, Waterville

Please join us for the Maine Lit Fest Kickoff Event, a FREE conversation between author Carmen Maria Machado and Colby Assistant Professor of Creative Writing and novelist Sarah Braunstein (author of The Sweet Relief of Missing Children).

One of today’s most ground-breaking young writers, Carmen Maria Machado creates haunting and genre-defying work that blends sci-fi, horror, fantasy, and literary criticism and grips readers from beginning to end. For this Kickoff Event, Machado, best known for her memoir In the Dream House and her award-winning short story collection Her Body and Other Parties, will discuss breaking literary molds, writing queer relationships, embracing the weird, and her writing process and projects.

Doors open at 6:30 PM, and the conversation starts at 7 PM.

Books will be sold by The Colby Bookstore.

More details to be announced on the MWPA website.
