Carmen Maria Machado’s short story collection, Her Body and Other Parties, has been called “beautifully atmospheric and weird, sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking—and full of knife-sharp commentary on living as a woman in the world” (Electric Literature). Seattle Arts & Lectures brings Machado to Town Hall’s stage for a discussion of the themes that pervade and inspire her work. Machado aligns inventive horror with dark comedy and poignant commentary in this series of stories that evoke truths that are simultaneously universal and unfathomable. Sit in for an exploration of this lauded collection and a look at the future of Macahdo’s writing.
