ABOUT THE READERS:

 

Richard L. Gegick is from Trafford. He writes and waits tables for a living.

 

Karen Lillis was born in Washington, DC during the Vietnam War and has lived in Virginia, Texas, New York, Paris, and Pittsburgh. She is the author of four short novels, including “Watch the Doors As They Close” (Spuyten Duyvil, 2012) and “The Second Elizabeth” (Six Gallery Press, 2009). She was a writer in residence at Shakespeare and Company in Paris, a regular contributor to the anti-war/poetry newspaper New York Nights after 2001, and once wrote a short story on the side of a freight train. In 2014 her fiction was recognized with an Acker Award for Avant Garde Excellence. She runs Small Press Roulette, an indie bookselling service.

 

Erin Oh grew up in Pittsburgh and lived in Canada for eight years where she studied the sociology of education. She has worked as a union organizer, researcher, video instructor, and workshop facilitator. Erin is currently interested in growing community around feminist, anti-racist parenting. Her favorite books are “Just Kids” and “Pedagogy of the Oppressed.”

 

Jude Vachon lives in Pittsburgh with a pack that includes a beagle and a cat. She works as a librarian, which unfortunately does not mean that she sits around and reads all day.

 

Andy Hoffman knew from an early age he’d make a lousy woman. Every time he looked at himself, he thought, “I hope I never produce a bunch of estrogen.” One Summer, he dropped everything and drove to Alaska to work in a fish cannery. He’s lived in Pittsburgh far too long and works as a web developer at IBM.

Hope to see you there!
