WITCHING HOUR FESTIVAL EVENT
Punk music and fashion trailblazer Richard Hell will join novelist Katherine Faw (Ultraluminous, Young God) and Iowa City writers Paloma Yannakakis and Marcus Brown.
Richard Hell is a writer, punk musician, and fashion trailblazer. His groundbreaking 1977 album Blank Generation, seminal to the creation of punk, was recently re-released in a two-disk 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition. His autobiography, I Dreamed I Was a Very Clean Tramp, was published in 2013. His most recent book is a collection of essays, Massive Pissed Love. He lives in New York and is at work on a new novel.
Katherine Faw is the author of the novel Ultraluminous, named a best book of the year by The New Yorker, BOMB, and Vulture. "Ultraluminous is a sort of American Psycho from the prostitute’s point of view, a damning, often hilarious account of toxic masculinity and Wall Street money culture." ―The New Yorker
Katherine Faw is also the author of Young God, which was named a best book of the year by The Times Literary Supplement and BuzzFeed. She lives in Brooklyn.
