On Saturday March 14th, Deer Bear Wolf Press will release its first full length book with Laura Relyea’s ALL GLITTER, EVERYTHING at the Big House on Ponce.
ALL GLITTER, EVERYTHING is a book that has everything and nothing to do with glitter and Kesha. Consider it an exercise in shine theory. It's an entry point to a world where glitter is a verb, noun, and adjective. It’s instinctive and messy and everywhere, much like Kesha.
Kesha is an emblem, indicative of the carnivorous joy of womanhood. She’s every woman cast in every role – a friend, a confidante, a conflict, a resolution. Kesha is sorry. (But Kesha is never sorry.) Kesha is you and me. Each story in this book is emblematic of an inspiring or empowering woman.
All Glitter, Everything is a collection of 50 stories, which graduated from a chapbook of the same name, and a portion of which will be featured in the third volume of The &NOW Awards: The Best Innovative Writing (forthcoming, March 2015). These are the stories of one woman’s embrace of her whole self and the whole world – the good, the bad, the ugly, and the glittery.
So, in celebration of the book’s release Deer Bear Wolf & author Laura Relyea are rallying the individual women who inspired the book to share their portions of the stories. Along with a lot of flower crowns, glitter, and hugs, attendees can anticipate readings, both live and filmed, from: Jayne O’Connor, Melysa Martinez, Gina Myers, Molly Brodak, Stevi Waggoner, Rachael Maddux, Heather Christle, Lauren Traetto, Brooke Hatfield, Allie Bashuk, Aubrey Hirsch, Jess Jones, Erin Palovick, Leesa Cross-Smith, Gray Chapman, Amy Stufflebeam, Alexis Pope, Elizabeth Rowan, and Laura Relyea.
Oh, and naturally it’ll all end in one glittery dance party – just like Kesha would want.
