A Natural History of Transition is Callum Angus’s debut collection of short stories whose fleshed-out settings are inextricable from the other themes running through them—of expansive and expanding transformation, of rot and decay, of restrained longing and colonial devastation and impossibly finding friendship.
Sending love to everyone – those with precarious incomes, compromised immunity, illness, anxiety, high-risk work environments, whose friends and families are far, whose roommates are terrible, who provide or require essential services, whose living situations are already painful.
It’s been 35 years since Ruth West created and released Thea’s Tarot, amid a flurry of lesbian feminist tarot decks in the US in the early 1980s. Come celebrate the first reprint since then, coordinated by local queer publisher Metonymy Press. Oliver Pickle, author of She Is Sitting in the Night: Re-visioning Thea’s Tarot, will be on site for a Q&A and tarot readings. Plus, Metonymy is celebrating its four-year anniversary with drinks, a surprise guest and more!
