Hugo Literary Series

Hugo House has another stellar year of literary lights coming our way. The 2014-15 Literary Series begins Friday, September 19, with “Backseats & Bedrooms” featuring new work from novelist Mona Simpson, author of Casebook and other novels; poet Dorothea Lasky, author of four books of poetry; Carter Sickels, winner of the Lambda Literary’s Emerging Writer Award; and The Drop Shadows, who will provide music.

In addition, the three writers will offer workshops on Saturday, September 20: Mona Simpson will teach “Sentence and Sensibility“, Dorothea Lasky will teach “Anecdotes of the Jar: Create a Tiny Universe in Less Than 10 Lines” and Carter Sickels will teach “Turning Life Into Fiction.”

The Literary Series continues with equally intriguing presentations in October, February, March and May. Tickets are on sale for individual events, workshops and the full series. Go!
