Periodically throughout the year we will be mining the amazing yet relatively hidden world of literature in Vermont. Between the Vermont Studio Center, Vermont College of Fine Arts, The Green Mountain Review, and all of the wonderful writing programs through the universities and colleges in Vermont, there is a glut of world class writers that find their way to our beautiful state each year. Our goal is to bring these artists into the public eye and share their work with you while you have a drink or some fries.
Our first of these series will be with Trinie Dalton + Porochista Khakpour.
Trinie Dalton has authored, edited, and/or curated six books. Wide Eyed (Akashic) was a selection of Dennis Cooper’s Little House on the Bowery series and a finalist for The Believer book award. Dear New Girl or Whatever Your Name Is (McSweeney’s), co-edited with Lisa Wagner and Eli Horowitz, is an art book for which she transformed her archive of confiscated high school notes into a collaboration between fifty artists. Mythtym (Picturebox) is an art/fiction anthology based on mythological monsters and horror. Sweet Tomb (Madras Press) is a fairy tale novella. Baby Geisha (Two Dollar Radio), is her most recent story collection.
Porochista Khakpour is the author of the novels THE LAST ILLUSION (May 2014, Bloomsbury)and SONS AND OTHER FLAMMABLE OBJECTS (2007, Grove)--the 2007 California Book Award winner in “First Fiction,” one of the Chicago Tribune’s “Fall’s Best,” and a New York Times “Editor’s Choice.” Her writing has appeared in or is forthcoming in Harper’s, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Slate, Salon, Spin, The Daily Beast, Elle, and many other publications around the world. She currently teaches creative writing at Columbia University, Eugene Lang, and Wesleyan University. Born in Tehran and raised in Los Angeles, she lives in New York City.
