The IPRC’s very own A.M. O’Malley is releasing her highly anticipated collection of stories about growing up in the wilds of the rural back waters of everywhere. She asked all her dearest artist friends to illustrate it and boy oh boy did they come through.
The event will include a reading by Ms. O’Malley, by the amazingly articulate Carrot Quinn, and a performance by a special musical guest.
This event will be hosted by the Waypost at 3120 N Williams and will be from 7:30-10pm. It is free and open to the public.
about the zinester as told by her dear friend Carrot Quinn:
A.M. knows that the small is just a metaphor for the large, in the same way that veins are just metaphors for the branching limbs of oak trees and ferns uncurling in the springtime are just metaphors for the milky way. She knows that everything is just a metaphor for something else, and that life follows just a few patterns, really, and she likes to discover these patterns in zines, garbage, and the crisp warm feeling of clean sheets, fresh from the dryer, which are really just a metaphor for grandmothers, and places where there is enough sun to dry your laundry on the line.
