Kate Zambreno Reading Tour

Kate Zambreno will be doing a reading tour to support her new book, Green Girl (Emergency Press). In a recent review of Green Girl Lightsey Darst of Bookslut wrote, “reading this book is like eating Oreos, if Oreos could be filled with spiders and simultaneously retain their addictive power.” Many of the dates will be with authors from the anthology Men Undressed: Women Writers on the Male Sexual Experience (OV Books). Also note, there is a reading with Laurie Weeks in NY on Oct 18–Laurie’s new book Zipper Mouth (Feminist Press) is explosive. Don’t even think about missing it.

      I’m so totally going to that Chicago one. And this time I’m going to convince Kate to record the whole book on tape! I’m convinced a book on tape by Kate would be a break-out indy hit .

      Also, I’m trying to get Kate nicknamed “KaZam.” Like this comment if you agree and will call her that.
