Event Details

Come celebrate Trans Day of Visibility with a two-part spring reading series at SMSU (4/4 and 4/11), held on Thursdays at 7pm in the Whipple Gallery. On April 11th, poet and fiction writer Anya Johanna DeNiro will visit to read from her Small Beer Press novella OKPsyche.

“DeNiro’s novel is a lyrical, emotionally powerful story about what it means to try and find a place for yourself in the midst of a hurricane of climate disaster, violence, and fear. It’s a story told through weird, ghostly, haunting fantasy. Fans of enigmatic speculative fiction like Our Wives Under the Sea, by Julia Armfield (2022), will enjoy this tale of queer parenthood, of the reality of the sharp fear of trans lives, and of complicated self-discovery.”
— Booklist (starred review)

Copies will be available for purchase; a Q&A session will follow the reading.
