If Sex Sells, I’m Buying : A Night of Red Hot Erotica with Steve Almond
Steve Almond is the award-winning author of ten books, including his nonfiction breakout Candyfreak and his short story collection God Bless America. In recent years, Almond has self-published several books through the print-on-demand Espresso Book Machine at the Harvard Book Store. Join the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance as Almond presents his latest DIY effort: Writs of Passion, a series of six tiny books of literary erotica that are only available at Almond’s live readings. The cover images of the six volumes fit together, like a puzzle, to form a single very dirty image. The series is sold together in a fishnet sack! Almond’s fiction has appeared in the Best American Short Stories 2010, McSweeney’s, New England Review, Playboy, Tin House, and many other publications. He has contributed articles to the Believer, Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, GQ, Poets & Writers, The Sun, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, and countless other magazines and newspapers. Presented in collaboration with Longfellow Books.
