Judith Katz and Josina Manu Maltzman reading from their respective works. Join us for an intimate reading with these two local writers, with lively conversation to follow.

Judith Katz is the author of two published novels, Running Fiercely Toward a High Thin Sound and The Escape Artist, plus her novel-in-a-drawer, The Atomic Age. She is currently juggling a full time advising job, a sequel to The Escape Artist, revisions to that novel-in-a-drawer, and a performance piece about.....about....about....

Josina Manu Maltzman is a carpenter by trade, a writer by passion, and a rabble-rouser by everything else. Jo has the honor of being published in That’s Revolting! Queer Strategies for Resisting Assimilation in 2004. Josina will be reading from a work in progress: a mytho-biography spanning multiple generations of a Jewish family, which relates historical trauma to cycles of violence, both intimate and global. Josina is a fiscal year 2014 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This project is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation by the Minnesota State legislature; and by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
