reading featuring Moe Bowstern

From IPRC (Independent Publishing Resource Center):
Featured Reader: Moe Bowstern
Join us for a free reading featuring zinester Moe Bowstern. For many years, Moe has brought us the inside story about being a woman who fishes commercially in her zine Xtra Tuff. She’s an amazing storyteller and reveals much about the history of commercial fishing in Alaska through a very descriptive and personable narrative that can be understood by any layperson. She tells great stories of the crews she’s been involved with and their dynamics as well being a woman involved in a very male dominated profession. An open mic will follow the reading.
Thursday September 8; 7-10pm
@ the IPRC
