Theodore McCombs in conversation with Sanjena Sathian

June 9, 2023 - 7:00pm
Virtual - Zoom

Please join us on Zoom for a virtual event with Theodore McCombs, who will read from and talk about his new short stories, Uranians, with Sanjena Sathian.  "McCombs draws worlds--past, present, and future--in which capitalism-assisted technologies and patriarchy-induced paranormalities have taken control, rendering us unrecognizable to one another. These are extraordinary tales of anti-heroes in post-apocalyptic and macabre landscapes who must battle systems to find their liberation and in the process illuminate our own. McCombs has written an absorbing and thought-provoking debut collection." --Alejandro Varela
