Mairead Case: A Reading and Conversation

November 10, 2020 - 7:00 pm

Mairead Case

Join Mairead Case for a reading from her new novel Tiny, a contemporary, poetic retelling of Sophocles’ Antigone, set in the Pacific Northwest. A Q&A will follow.

Case is the author of the forthcoming The Georgetown Steamplant Graphic Novel with David Lansky, as well as the poetry chapbook TENDERNESS and the novel See You in the Morning, which Electric Literature called “[h]eartbreaking and familiar, liable to trigger flashbacks of alienation so vivid, they’ll make your feet sweat.”

Case teaches English full-time to eighth-graders and part-time at the Denver Women’s Jail. She is also a legal observer with the National Lawyers Guild and volunteers for a community response team supporting queer and trans survivors of violence. She holds a Ph.D. from the University of Denver and is a former birthday party clown.
