Poetry/Word Love from Casa Libre on Thursday

Posted By on Tue, Mar 19, 2013 at 11:20 AM

Thursday, for a $5 suggested donation, you're in for some outstanding poetry and word love from the good folks at Casa Libre. Imogene Binnie will read from her new novel, Nevada, and will be joined by Sarah Gonzales, Rocket and T.C. Tolbert.

This gets going at 7 p.m. and Casa Libre is at 228 N. 4th Ave.

Here's some info from Casa Libre on Binnie and the new book:

About Nevada: Nevada is the darkly comedic story of Maria Griffiths, a young trans woman living in New York City and trying to stay true to her punk values while working retail. When she finds out her girlfriend has lied to her, the world she thought she’d carefully built for herself begins to unravel, and Maria sets out on a journey that will most certainly change her forever.

Imogen Binnie is the author of the zines The Fact That It’s Funny Doesn’t Make It A Joke and Stereotype Threat. Additionally, her work has been anthologized in The Collection: Short Fiction from the Transgender Vanguard, released in Fall 2012. She is currently a monthly contributor to Maximum Rocknroll and has previously written for Aorta Magazine, The Skinny and PrettyQueer.com. She writes about books at www.keepyourbridgesburning.com. Nevada is her first novel.

A belated congratulations also goes out to Tolbert, who has been amazingly prolific as of late. An anthology he's been co-editing with Tim Trace Peterson the last couple of years, Troubling the Line: Trans and Genderqueer Poetry and Poetics, was recently been published by Nightboat Books.
