The event creator says
Elissa Washuta, a Seattle-based writer and teacher, is celebrating the release of her second book, Starvation Mode: A Memoir of Food, Consumption, and Control from Instant Future, an eBook series from Future Tense Books. On July 1, at Hugo House, she’ll read from the memoir, answer questions about the book and the writing process, and sign copies of the book. Instant Future editor Matthew Simmons will moderate a Q&A.

ABOUT THE BOOK
In Starvation Mode: A Memoir of Food, Consumption, and Control, Washuta—author of 2014’s genre-defying memoir of ethnic identity, sexual trauma, bipolar disorder, and independence, My Body Is a Book of Rules—crafts a personal accounting of her struggle for culinary control, and presents the guidelines she followed as she attempted to shape her body and mind through the food she consumed.

The book’s seemingly simple structure (a series of rules to eat and live by) contrasts with the powerful way she pulls readers into a complicated story of our needs and the cultural pressures that shape us.

Starvation Mode is ~15k words, a mini-memoir just made for a single evening’s read.

The book will be available as an eBook on June 16. Pre-order here: http://thisisinstantfuture.com/
