The Guillotine Project #2/3 Launch with Kate Zambreno and Bojan Louis
Where: The Melville House storefront and gallery space, 145 Plymouth St. Brooklyn, NY 11211
When: 7:00PM, May 8th
Join us for drinks and discussion as we celebrate the second and third chapbooks by one of the most exciting new presses operating in Brooklyn, Sarah McCarry‘s GUILLOTINE PROJECT. For those who missed our launch for the first Guillotine chapbook, the project puts out works of revolutionary nonfiction in a short, beautiful form.
Bojan Louis will be here, author of Troubleshooting Silence in Arizona.
“Colonization has a bad taste, a reason for ethnic solidarity. Because, well, not all us brown-skin motherfuckers were annihilated.”
and Kate Zambreno, author of Apoplexia, Toxic Shock and Toilet Bowl
“A girl is a gun. A woman is a bomb”
Both will read from and talk about their work with Sarah.
Guillotine Project, and these authors, are working to push the boundaries of what indie nonfiction can be and do. You won’t want to miss this one.
KATE ZAMBRENO is the author of the critical memoir Heroines, published by Semiotext(e) in November 2012. She is also the author of the novels Green Girl and O Fallen Angel. Her anti-memoir, Book of Mutter, will be published by Counterpath Press in March 2014.
