Thurs 9/27 Maureen Brady & Patricia Carragon Read at Women’s & Trans’ Poetry Jam at Bluestockings
Thurs Sept 27th 7pm – 9pm
Feature Writers: Maureen Brady & Patricia Carragon
In Maureen Brady’s new novel Getaway: After stabbing her abusive husband and leaving him dying on the kitchen floor, Cookie Wagner flees to remote Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, and, for a moment, she seems to have gotten away with murder. But, consigned to a secretive life with a new name and the need to be on constant alert, she faces all she has not gotten away with.
Patricia Carragon writes about how screwed up the world is getting and sometimes sticks a cat into the plot. She is currently using music as inspiration for poems and writes plenty of prose and haiku.
