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.
The author of Nevada, Imogen Binnie, will be doing two free readings in Burlington on Monday, April 29.
12:00 Noon in the Livak Ballroom at the Davis Center (sponsored by UVM Campus Programs and College Undergraduates Not Tolerating Sexism). There will be some refreshments and food available at the reading. You can check out and share this event on facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/events/500869989960824/
6:00pm at the Radio Bean Cafe (8 North Winooski Ave). Check it out and share it on facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/events/503070736396985/
Each reading will probably be different, if you care to attend both!
Come on out and hear a new and powerful voice reading her groundbreaking work. Nevada has been called “…so powerful and authentic it could save a life.” (Ali Liebegott, author of The Beautifully Worthless). Michelle Tea has said of the author, “A really powerful new literary voice. I’m really excited about Imogen Binnie!”
