Margo Steines in conversation with Melissa Febos

October 6, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Prairie Lights

Margo Steines will read from her new book Brutalities, “a searing, vivid memoir that investigates the dynamics of violence, power, desire, and a body pushed to the brink.” She will be joined in conversation by Nonfiction Writing Professor Melissa Febos.

“Brutalities is electric with insight, riveted by its commitments—to love and bewilderment, to bearing witness—and utterly propulsive in its explorations of compulsion, tenderness, caregiving, and desire.” –Leslie Jamison, author of The Empathy Exams

Margo Steines holds an MFA in creative nonfiction from the University of Arizona, where she teaches writing. Her work has appeared in the New York Times (Modern Love), the Sun, and elsewhere. A native New Yorker, she lives in Tucson, Arizona.

Melissa Febos is the author of Whip SmartAbandon Me, Girlhood, and Body Work: The Radical Power of Personal Narrative.
