KGB: Dzanc authors John Domini & Carole Firstman

February 04, 2017
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

John Domini has earned rare praise for his new set of short stories, MOVIEOLA!  (Dzanc Books). Critics are calling it “the smartest kind of fun,” “feverishly exuberant,” and “a glory.” The book offers a romp through the cineplex of the moviemaker’s mind, in which the usual heroes, the superman or the assassin or the sports star, are trotted out for various dry runs. Thus we may recognize the narrative outlines, but we’ve never seen them so twisted. Is this storytelling, or its opposite? Domini’s reading may provide answers. In any case, he’s a regular visitor to KGB and a lively performer. Q & A afterward may also touch on his wide range of other publications—novels, journalism, criticism, and poetry—and his teaching at Harvard, Northwestern, and elsewhere. See www.johndomini.com.

She wrote about the relationship between subway musicians and their audiences, as part of the National Arts Journalism Program fellowship; and has written and produced a variety of radio specials and a short film on subjects ranging from Walt Whitman to Hurricane Katrina to artists with special needs. She currently works in a Pre-K classroom in the Bronx, where the stories of 4-year-olds surprise her every single day.  A big than you to the 2016 Fall Writing Workshop Residents for their generous spirits, comradeship, and critiques.

PADRAIG SHEA’s writing first appeared in the Boston Globe’s editorial pages, where he argued for Barack Obama for president and for the bike lanes that now wind through the city. He also covered cops and crime for the news desk.  Padraig taught in the Mississippi Delta through Teach For America and in Gwangju, South Korea, through the Fulbright Program.

RR: The Last Taboos

January 24, 2017
7:30 pm -

THE LAST TABOOS: MIDWINTER MURDER EDITION

7.30 Wine Reception.  Discussion and Reading 8pm.  9pm James Delano and Friends.  No cover.  1 drink minimum.

What better way to pass a frozen January night than to ponder the world through the eyes of a maniac? For the second edition of KGB’s new literary salon, Tony Perrottet will interview Charles Graeber, author of the bestselling The Good Nurse: A True Story of Medicine, Madness and Murder about America’s most prolific serial killer—a nurse in New Jersey who may have clocked up 300 victims—and Nina Burleigh, author of the award-winning The Fatal Gift of Beauty: The Trials of Amanda Knox, about the frenzied, sensational accusations against an all-American college student in Italy that gripped the world media.
What are the unspoken taboos that accompany the writing of true crime sagas? Is it the Capote-like unease, familiar to all journalists, of profiting from crime and horror? Or, more compellingly, is there also an aversion to admitting what is required when a writer enters the mind of a sociopath?
