Sonya Huber: SUPREMELY TINY ACTS

Wed, October 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Sonya Huber, author of Pain Woman Takes Your Keys and Other Books, will read from her new book, Supremely Tiny Acts: A Memoir of a Day, about an arrest and court appearance with the climate action group Extinction Rebellion. The book is written in a stream-of-consciousness style that tries to track mundane thoughts and threads in the face of massive events. She will talk with attendees about the power of writing "the everyday" and share a few writing techniques.

Sonya will be joined in conversation by writer and theater director, Julia Lee Barclay-Morton.
