Megan Milks & Cris Mazza

Megan Milks’ fierce debut Kill Marguerite and Other Stories collects thirteen risk-taking tales obsessed with crossing boundaries: the Sweet Valley twins get stuck in a choose-your-own-adventure story; Mean Girls-violence gets embedded within a classic video game; a woman metamorphoses into a giant slug; another quite literally eats her heart out. These stories address the ways that social power operates on, and through, queer bodies. Megan Milks is a fiction writer, cultural critic, and scholar.In Something Wrong with Her, Mazza’s poignant memoir about her struggle with anorgasmia, she captures what it’s like to wait for a sexual awakening that never arrives. The memoir includes diary entries, musical scores, and an accompanying CD. Tonight we will also be celebrating the publication of a new edition of Mazza’s novel Various Men Who Knew Us as Girls, which includes a new author foreword as well as a guest foreword by Antonia Crane. Cris Mazza is the author of more than a dozen books and is currently a writing professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
