Winner of the 2019 PEN/Diamonstein-Spielvogel – Michelle Tea
Michelle Tea – Against Memoir – Sunday 6 October, 6pm – University of Sheffield Students Union
Winner of the 2019 PEN/Diamonstein-Spielvogel Award for the Art of the Essay, and selected in the Stylist as on the ‘Best LGBTQ books to read this pride month’, Against Memoir is a razor-sharp excavation of America’s fringes: a bracing, brilliant, hardcore tonic for our times, and exuberant, witty guide to the hard time and wild creativity of queer life in America.
Author of novel Black Wave, and a known literary organiser in queer and feminist circles, Tea moves from the political to the personal, covering art, queerness and love – as well as her music obsessions from Goth to Prince. A true kaleidoscope of love and adventure.
Join her as she shares her irreverent, honest and raucous take on life.
