Reading Wednesday May 28th

The Guerrilla Lit Reading Series welcomes Rachel Sontag, Jesse Dorris, and Elizabeth May to Bar on A. This reading starts earlier than usual: Please join us at 7:00 PM.

RACHEL SONTAG is the author of the memoir House Rules (HarperCollins). She was born and raised in Evanston, Illinois. She received her MFA in creative writing from The New School. She lives in New York City. House Rules is her first book.

"Sontag’s is a brave account, not only of what it’s like to take the brunt of an abusive parent’s wrath, but of what it means to have the courage to leave."
— Publishers Weekly

JESSE DORRIS' writing has appeared in Out, Black Book, The Brooklyn Rail, The Salt River Review, and the anthologies New York Sex: Stories and Latin Lovers. He co-edited the anthology B├ęsame Mucho with Jaime Manrique. He received an MFA from the New School, and is currently at work on a novel.

ELIZABETH MAY doesn't like women in skirts. The best thing is to wear pantyhose or some pants under a short skirt, then you have the pants under the skirt and then you can pull the stockings up over the pants, underneath the skirt and you can always take off the skirt and use it as a cape. Elizabeth thinks this is the best costume for the day. She received her MFA in creative writing from the New School in 2006.
