Don’t forget to come see me talk about my photography over at Bluestockings this Sunday, May 26th at Bluestockings! Here’s the blurb from their website:
Three writers and a fine art photographer will present their work exploring the ideas of nostalgia and shared memory and the joys of secondhand junk. Katie Haegele lives in Philadelphia, where she works as a freelance writer and makes zines. Her first book, “White Elephants,” is about going to yard sales with her mom and the weird old things they find there. Annie Soga is an artist from Portland, Oregon whose photographic work explores the intersection of everyday objects, history, and people, inspired by her upbringing with two flea market-dealer parents. Eryn Loeb’s writing on diverse and nostalgic topics has appeared in The Los Angeles Times, Poets & Writers, The Awl, The Rumpus, The Millions, Bitch Magazine, and many other publications. Betsy Housten is a Brooklyn-based massage therapist who writes the annual zine “You Know Better.” She’s also the resident zine curator here at Bluestockings.
I think it’s $5 suggested donation now, by the way (the $ goes to Bluestockings, not my cannoli-buying fund, wamp-wamp… although if you bring me a cannoli I’ll pay you back with a smile and a high-five). Hope to see you there!!!
