Bios:

 

Patrica Carragon’s work tends to be edgy and humorous, written by an outsider looking in.

 

Hilary Lustick’s work focuses on the human experience generally with a special focus on the weird and ironic vicissitudes that make it most meaningful. This will be her second reading at Bluestockings, the first having been as a contributor to Milk and Honey, an anthology of women’s lesbian poetry.
