Thursday, August 26 at 6:00 p.m.
*This event is part of our Passport to the Arts Series

Brooke Wonders reads new work from her memoir-in-progress, a darkly comic look at suicide that asks, given the lethality of suicide methods used by men, and the fact that suicides are most often committed by those who are unmarried or divorced, where are all the stories of the girlfriends they leave behind? Wonders lost her live-in boyfriend when she was 23 and mourned him like a spouse. Her memoir, Self-Erasure, explores self-harm, the goth-industrial scene circa 2004, and how to grieve when your boyfriend’s family thinks you’re the murderer.

The FTRS is a collaboration of Final Thursday Press, the Hearst Center, the UNI College of Humanities, Arts and Sciences, and the UNI Department of Languages and Literatures. This event takes place on the final Thursday of each month starting in August. Open mic starts at 6:00 p.m. and featured author begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Hearst Garden.
