“One of the most original and wonderfully weird prose stylists of our time.”
—Kate Zambreno, author of Green Girl
With an archly comic voice and inspirations that deftly blend visual art, poetry, and fiction, Danielle Dutton is always game for reinventing the narrative. In Margaret the First, Dutton dramatizes the life of Margaret Cavendish, a 17th-century duchess who wrote and published poems, philosophy, feminist plays, and utopian science-fiction at a time when being a writer was not an option for women. Join Dutton for a reading and conversation about women in publishing with Los Angelesâ€“based writer Amina Cain.
