Genevieve Hudson & Alden Jones: A Virtual Reading with the Bureau
Genevieve Hudson will read from her new novel, “Boys of Alabama.” Melissa Febos says of the book: “This novel is a love song to outsiders of all kinds, a queer love story about the ways we find to heal ourselves and each other, and proof that there can be magic amid the burdens of masculinity. Hudson’s prose is perfect and I will remember her ‘Boys of Alabama’ for a long, long time.”
Alden Jones will read from her new bibliomemoir, “The Wanting Was a Wilderness: Cheryl Strayed’s Wild and the Art of Memoir.” Alex Marzano-Lesnevich says: “Alden Jones intended to write a reckoning with a contemporary literary classic—but she has written far more than that. To carefully dissect ‘Wild,’ she finds she must consider her own quests: her own time in the wild; her self-discoveries as a queer woman; and how she can both live and tell an authentic story. This is a beautiful, lyric, unexpected book about the power of memoir and how desire both leads us into the wilderness and makes for us a map. ‘The Wanting Was a Wilderness’ is a book for readers, true readers, to treasure.”
