Burrow Press Invasive Speakings Tour Featuring Lidia Yuknavitch and Asha Doré

February 24, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

 

Floridian Shane Hinton, editor of the new anthology, We Can’t Help It If We’re From Florida, travels the country for readings with writers who’ve tried to escape the clutches of the sinking peninsula. These writers also happen to be in the book.

On his NYC stop, he’ll read alongside Lidia Yuknavitch and Asha Doré.

PRAISE FOR WE CAN’T HELP IT IF WE’RE FROM FLORIDA

“While no book could ever fully explain the mysteries of today’s Sunshine State, this smart chorus of varied and brilliant voices comes as close as any I’ve read.”
–LAUREN GROFF, Fates & Furies

“A geographic mixtape that spans the Panhandle to Key West, here is that uniquely Floridian madness as seen from the eye of the hurricane. Thank God, here’s something Florida can feel proud to have produced. New work that’s as weird and funny and beautiful and unnerving as you might expect from some of our state’s best writers. Whether you grew up on the Gulf or are still repressing a lost weekend in Daytona, you’ll nd plenty to enjoy here.” –KAREN RUSSELL, Swamplandia!

“A heartfelt, complex counter to all those #FloridaMan jokes.”
–KIRKUS REVIEWS

“Vivid scenes in each piece provide both nostalgic and newly discovered images of Florida’s landscape and culture.”
–FOREWORD REVIEWS
