THE GRAMMA READING SERIES 1

June 23rd, 2018
with Lindy West, Kate Durbin, Stacey Tran
and a special performance by Fausto & Cheryl of Au Collective

Hosted by Kim Selling

7pm, Erickson Theater

Lindy West (born March 9, 1982) is an American writer, comedian and activist. She is the author of the essay collection Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman and a con-tributing opinion writer for The New York Times. Her primary topics include feminism and the fat acceptance movement.

Kate Durbin is a Los Angeles based writer and artist whose books include E! Entertainment (Wonder), The Ravenous Audience (Akashic), and ABRA (1913 Press), a free, interactive iOS app that is "a living text." ABRA won the 2017 Turn On Literature Prize for electronic literature, and was funded by an NEA grant from the Center for Book and Paper Arts at Columbia College Chicago. Her novella Kim's Fairytale Wedding was recently translated to Spanish and published in Mexico/Spain. In 2015, Durbin was the Arts Queensland Poet-in-Residence in Brisbane, Australia and she is currently a Digital Studies fellow at Camden-Rutgers University.

Stacey Tran is a writer from Portland, OR. She is the creator of Tender Table, a storytelling series about food, family, identity. She is the author of Soap for the Dogs (Gramma, 2018).

Au Collective are dance artists of color, womxn artists, and queer artists focused on creating dance that celebrates alternative voices and visions. Their mission is to make accessible platforms for underrepresented communities while disrupting the symptoms of systemic oppression that exist in dance spaces.

Kim Selling is an always-nude fat queer femme based in Seattle. She can be found complaining about music for The Stranger, yelling about poetry for Gramma Press, posting a million selfies on her popular Instagram tag #horribleinternetfatgirls, and selling piles of glittering vintage for bunny ranch madams, crop top goths, and lizard queens alike on the World Wide Web.
