T KIRA MADDEN
The Iowa Nonfiction Writing Program presents T Kira Madden, who will read from Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls. "Madden brings her sharply funny voice to her new book, which humanely explores her coming of age as a biracial queer teenager in Boca Raton, Florida, and the climate of abuse and addiction that surrounded her." - Entertainment Weekly, "Most Anticipated Books of 2019"
