Nightbitch has been heralded an incredible feat by Carmen Maria Machado, who describes it as "A feral, unholy marriage of Tillie Olsen and Kafka.” Nightbitch has received praise from Publishers Weekly, Jenny Offill, and Kevin Wilson, and has already been optioned for film by Annapurna with Amy Adams set to star.
Rachel Yoder is a graduate of the Iowa Nonfiction Writing Program and also holds an MFA in fiction from the University of Arizona. A resident of Iowa City for 12 years, it's been her great pleasure to be a part of the literary community in her work with the Mission Creek Festival, Iowa Youth Writing Project, Iowa Summer Writing Festival, Iowa Young Writers' Studio, and UNESCO City of Literature. She is a founding editor of draft: the journal of process.
Ticket badges are available at Prairie Lights Books - 15 S. Dubuque St, while supplies last. Books will be sold at the event by Prairie Lights.
