Maria Marchado in Conversation with Garth Greenwell

November 9 @ 4:00 pm

Free

Writers’ Workshop graduate Carmen Maria Machado will read from In the Dream House, published by Graywolf Press. Author Garth Greenwell will join her to talk about the book.   “Wrought with alarming premonition, propulsive rhythm, and a trove of folkloric archetypes, Machado’s genre-crushing memoir is a meditation on the eclipse of knowledge and intuition by the narcotic light of a destructive bond that feels like love.”—Melissa Broder

Carmen Maria Machado is the author of Her Body and Other Parties, which was a finalist for the National Book Award and winner of the National Book Critics Circle’s John Leonard Prize. She lives in Philadelphia with her wife.  Garth Greenwell is also a Writers’ Workshop Graduate, and the author of What Belongs to You and the forthcoming Cleanness.
