Join us to celebrate the release of Almost Crimson (Curbside Splendor, 2015) by Dasha Kelly! Dasha will be joined by Cari Luna, this year's Ken Kesey Award for Fiction recipient and author of The Revolution of Every Day (Tin House, 2013) Cari Luna!

About Almost Crimson: For as long as she can remember, CeCe has taken care of herself. With her father gone and her mother crippled by chronic depression, CeCe struggles to find fulfillment in the sacrifice required to keep their lives together. As her mother's condition worsens, CeCe is forced to stay close to home and stifle her dreams. With the poetic dexterity of Nikki Giovanni and an unforgettable cast of compassionate characters, Dasha Kelly examines one woman's struggle to choose between her obligation to care for her mother and living life on her own terms.

About Revolution of Every Day: In the midnineties, New York's Lower East Side contained a city within its shadows: a community of squatters who staked their claims on abandoned tenements and lived and worked within their own parameters, accountable to no one but each other. On May 30, 1995, the NYPD rolled an armored tank down East Thirteenth Street and hundreds of police officers in riot gear mobilized to evict a few dozen squatters from two buildings. With gritty prose and vivid descriptions, Cari Luna's debut novel, The Revolution of Every Day, imagines the lives of five squatters from that time.
