Right Here. Right Now. A Conversation with Laurie Stone

A Conversation with Laurie Stone and Steve Mitchell
(Scroll Down for Sign-In Information)

Laurie Stone’s writing brings clarity and bracing insight to the events of today and our recent history, from the early days of the Women’s Movement to #MeToo and Cavanaugh hearings (which now seem ancient history), her writing is always grounded in the unapologetically personal and the current moment.

Join Laurie, in conversation with Steve Mitchell, as they talk about curiosity, passion, politics, and consider ways of writing, and surviving, in the current upheavals.

Everything Is Personal…describes our current predicament—everything that is not personal has vanished—and suggests a way of thinking sharply, imaginatively, beautifully, from right here.” -Masha Gessen, The New Yorker

LAURIE STONE writes fiction, hybrid literature, and criticism. A longtime writer for The Village Voice, she is the author of four books, most recently My Life as an Animal, Stories. Her work has appeared in n+1, Evergreen Review, and Fence, among other publications.

STEVE MITCHELL is the author of the novel, Cloud Diary, and the short story collection, The Naming of Ghosts. His work has appeared in december magazine, Southeast Review and Contrary Magazine, among others. He is co-owner of Scuppernong Books.
