Writers at the Wrecking Bar Presents Kristen Roupenian | You Know You Want This
The author of the hit New Yorker story “Cat Person”—“the short story that launched a thousand theories” (The Guardian)—Kristen Roupenian brings her highly anticipated debut to Atlanta.
"You Know You Want This" is a compulsively readable collection of short stories that explore the complex—and often darkly funny—connections between gender, sex, and power across genres. We cannot think of a better addition to an already stellar list of literary phenoms who have been a part of our Writers at the Wrecking Bar series.
Roupenian will be interviewed by Alison Law, host of the Literary Atlanta podcast.
Musical guest Kim Ware of the Good Graces will open the evening with a live set at 7 p.m.
