Surprise! I'm reading tomorrow at the University of Washington Bothell

Yes, it's true—I’m reading tomorrow at the UW Bothell. The wonderful Sarah Dowling is teaching The End of San Francisco in a class called Writers’ Research, so this will be a perfect opportunity to read from and discuss the book in all its glory—it’s a public event, so do feel free to invite the world… 

Here’s the lovely announcement the school made for the event:

The singular and brilliant MATTILDA BERNSTEIN SYCAMORE will grace UW Bothell with her presence on February 19th, at 6 pm, in DISC 162 for a reading from her book The End of San Francisco. The End of San Francisco is a genre-bending memoir about the myriad ways in which people fail each other. Touching upon queer activism, AIDS, sex work, ACT-UP, and the hopes of the 90s, the book asks what it means to be left in the wake of gentrification, loss, and the failures of politics. The End of San Francisco is the winner of a 2014 Lambda Literary Award.

Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore is the author of two novels, So Many Ways to Sleep Badly (2008) and Pulling Taffy (2003) and the editor of a number of anthologies: Why are Faggots so Afraid of Faggots: Flaming Challenges to Masculinity, Objectification and the Desire to Conform (2012), Nobody Passes: Rejecting the Rules of Gender and Conformity (2008), That's Revolting: Queer Strategies for Resisting Assimilation (2005; 2008); Dangerous Families: Queer Writing on Surviving; and Tricks and Treats: Sex Workers Write about their Clients.

And, here’s the Facebook invite...
