Join us for a reading and conversation with Samantha Walton, who will be reading from her new book Bad Moon (Spam Press, 2020).
"This is a book of quiet apocalypse, an elliptical crime story that is also a love story. 'Who killed Nature?' Walton's breathtaking range and precision, from dust to falling stars, earns the much-abused word 'cosmic'. Reading Bad Moon, I slipped into sharing the housework of ecological consciousness, feeling every hopeful or caretaking act at once ordinarily playful and tragically compromised." - Vahni Capildeo
