About the Event
Tune into BMI’s Instagram account! Our Shearing Fellow Kristen Arnett will be talking books & booze & everything in between, and bringing some joy to our afternoons.
This will be a recurring event with different literary guests every week.
On May 20, we welcome author Carmen Maria Machado.
Carmen Maria Machado, whose debut short story collection, Her Body and Other Parties, was a finalist for the National Book Award and the winner of the Lambda Literary Award for Lesbian Fiction. Machado’s essays, fiction, and criticism have appeared in The New Yorker, the New York Times, The Believer, Best American Science Fiction & Fantasy, and Best American Nonrequired Reading. A 2019 Gugenheim Fellow, Machado is currently the Writer in Residence at the University of Pennsylvania and lives in Philadelphia with her wife.
