It’s an honor to be included in this long-running lit series based at the seminal Hugo House in Seattle. I’ll be reading with Domingo Martinez and Terese Marie Mailhot.
From the Hugo House website:
“For the 2018–19 season of Hugo Literary Series—the first in our new home—we’re looking back to look forward and asking the writers and musicians to create new things from the old. Each event within the series takes its theme from an iconic book—those whose titles have a resonance beyond the book itself.
National Book Award finalist Domingo Martinez (The Boy Kings of Texas), bestselling memoirist Terese Marie Mailhot (Heart Berries), and emerging fiction writer Margaret Malone (People Like You) will read new work on the theme Stranger in a Strange Land, inspired by the title of Robert A. Heinlein’s sci-fi classic about a human raised by Martians who returns to Earth, an exile that becomes a messiah.
Cinematic singer songwriter Bryan John Appleby—featured on KEXP, Sound on Sound, Seattle Metmagazine, and elsewhere—will perform new songs to the same theme.”
