Memoirists ALEXANDRIA MARZANO-LESNEVICH (The Fact of a Body) and MELISSA FEBOS (Abandon Me)
Join Papercuts J.P. and La Rana Rossa pizzeria for an evening with memoirists ALEXANDRIA MARZANO-LESNEVICH and MELISSA FEBOS.
LESNEVICH’s memoir The Fact of a Body captures when she began a summer job at a law firm in Louisiana, working on the retrial defense of death-row convicted murderer and child molester Ricky Langley. She thought her position was clear. Shocked by her unexpected reaction to the case, she digs deeper and deeper, realizing that despite their vastly different circumstances, something in his story is unsettlingly, uncannily familiar.
In her dazzling Abandon Me, FEBOS captures the intense bonds of love and the need for connection—with family, lovers, and oneself.
