  • Chavisa Woods in the RADAR Reading Series

    March 7, 2013

    The RADAR Reading Series welcomes Chavisa Woods, author of The Albino Album, alongside Amber Dawn, Bruce Isaacson, and Stacey Waite, on Wednesday, March 7th at the San Francisco Public Library. 

    RADAR is a non-profit organization committed to providing programs devoted to the cultivation of queer and underground literature. Hosted by Michelle Tea, author, poet, and literary organizer known for her autobiographical work exploring the queer culture, this reading series brings together some of the best voices in LGBT writing.

    Chavisa Wood’s debut novel The Albino Album is bold exploration of the intersections of race, class, and sexuality, and contemplates the relationships between political action, art and romance, as our heroine tries on a series of bewitchingly fantastical families looking for the place to call home.

    Woods is a Brooklyn-based lesbian writer, artist, and activist, and recipient of the 2009 Jerome Foundation Award for emerging writers. Her debut collection of short stories, Love Does Not Make Me Gentle or Kind, was a Lambda Literary Award Finalist for Debut Fiction.
