We are so pleased to welcome Claire Rudy Foster, author of Shine of the Ever, to Roundabout this Friday at 6:00pm, and wanted to share the info with your organization. Foster is a queer, trans writer from Portland. Their work on sex, identity, relationships, and recovery appears in The New York Times, The Washington Post, McSweeney’s, and many more. Foster is the author of I’ve Never Done This Before. Their essays and fiction have been recognized for excellence, including four nominations for the Pushcart Prize. Foster holds an MFA in Creative Writing and teaches writing workshops in Portland.
Shine of the Ever was chosen as one of the “Best LGBTQ Books That’ll Change the Literary Landscape in 2019” by O: The Oprah Magazine, and we would love to see a full house of diverse and enthusiastic reader’s at their event, so if you are able to share this information, we would greatly appreciate it.
“Shine of the Ever is a literary mix tape of queer voices out of 1990s Portland. By turns tender and punk-tough, fierce and loving, this collection of short stories explores what binds a community of queer and trans people as they negotiate love, screwing up and learning to forgive themselves for being young and sometimes foolish.”
