New Book Club at Merritt Bookstore

Sat Feb 17th, 2018

Merritt Bookstore: Owner Kira Wizner launches a new bookclub at the bookstore. The first meeting will be Sunday, March 25th. The first book is Her Body and Other Parties: Stories by Carmen Maria Machado.It is the amazing short story collection that was shortlisted for the 2017 National Book Awards. In Her Body and Other Parties: StoriesCarmen Maria Machado blithely demolishes the arbitrary borders between psychological realism and science fiction, comedy and horror, fantasy and fabulism. While her work has earned her comparisons to Karen Russell and Kelly Link, she has a voice that is all her own. In this electric and provocative debut, Machado bends genre to shape startling narratives that map the realities of women’s lives and the violence visited upon their bodies.10:30am - Noon. 845 677 5857
