Myriam Gurba-- Dahlia Season

Combining the spark of Michelle Tea, the comic angst of Augusten Burroughs, and the warmth of Sandra Cisneros, Mexican American author Myriam Gurba has created a territory all her own. Come meet the author and California-based high school teacher and hear her read from her latest work, "Dahlia Season." The book, published through Manic D. Press, not only contains the title novella, but also several of Myriam's acclaimed stories. If your Friday night is already packed but you're dying to meet Myriam, luck is on your side-- she'll be performing with Cliterati on Thursday night at the Spot on Ralph McGill Blvd.
