about the authors:

CHLOE CALDWELL: a nonfiction writer living in upstate New York. Her first book of essays: Legs Get Led Astray, will be released by Future Tense Books in April of 2012. She writes a column for The Faster Times called “Love & Music.” Her essays have appeared in The Rumpus, Chronogram, The Frisky, The Sun Magazine, Jewcy, Mr. Beller’s Neighborhood, Vol 1. Brooklyn & Freerange Nonfiction.

TARA CLANCY: Manhattan-based writer Tara Clancy is the author of Off-Off Broadway productions Machetes & Maracas, The Geriatric Set, Achilles and Free Sample, and Channel Rat, which she performed at the NY Fringe Festival. She has taught writing to teenagers at the Harvey Milk School and to a wide range of age groups throughout the city. A third-generation bartender and native New Yorker (born and raised in Queens), she is also a licensed tour guide for the City of New York.

HOGAN GORMAN: author of “Hot Cripple” (Penguin 2012). Based on her one woman show called “Hot Cripple”, which I won the Outstanding Actor Award at the NYC Fringe Festival, “Hot Cripple” is Hogan’s true story about being the blue-eyed, blond model/actress who became the unlikely poster girl for the plight of the poor and uninsured in America after she was struck by a car in New York City street in 2004. Of Hogan’s book, Rachel Dratch said, “Hogan Gorman’s story will make you furious, it will make you incredulous, and it will also make you laugh your ass off,” and Salman Rushdie called it, “a smart, tough and very funny book.”

TEDDY WAYNE: Teddy Wayne is the author of the novel Kapitoil (Harper Perennial) and is the recipient of a 2011 Whiting Writers’ Award and an NEA Creative Writing Fellowship, and was the 2011 PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize runner-up and a finalist for the 2011 New York Public Library Young Lions Fiction Award and the 2011 Dayton Literary Peace Prize. He is a graduate of Harvard and Washington University in St. Louis, where he taught fiction and creative nonfiction writing. His work has appeared in The New Yorker, the New York Times, Vanity Fair, Time, Esquire, McSweeney’s, the Wall Street Journal, and elsewhere. He lives in New York.

SEE YOU THERE!
