A reading and discussion with Gina Nutt

Wednesday, April 7th @ 7:00 pm EDT

Join author Gina Nutt (Wilderness Champion) for an online reading and discussion of her debut collection of essays, Night Rooms, which will be published March 23rd by Two Dollar Radio. 

Amanda Morrell (BookMoon bookseller and friend of the author) will host and lead a discussion on Gina's new collection, her thoughts and approaches to writing, her favorite horror movies, and much more.

"Night Rooms is vulnerable, cinematic, and positively transcendent. Gina Nutt uses themes and details from horror films as a way into a meditation on the deaths she's experienced in her own life, acting as a kind of literary final girl, asking, what does it mean to survive? Nutt's exploration of this question is captivating to read, as her chainsaw-sharp sentences carve a path toward the truth. I love this book." —Chelsea Hodson, author of Tonight I'm Someone Else

"Whether she's uncovering connections between her homebuyer's course and haunted house movies, her wedding anniversary and Victorian taxidermy tableaux, or her shopping mall's glass elevator and destiny, Gina Nutt writes prose so astonishing I want to read it in an MRI machine just to confirm that every part of my brain indeed lit up. Night Rooms is a brilliant, beautiful, boundlessly inventive book."—Jeannie Vanasco, author of Things We Didn't Talk About When I Was a Girl

"In Night Rooms, Gina Nutt uses horror films to describe feelings and experiences that can't be expressed in words. As haunting as any good movie and as fragmented as any life, this innovative, intimate, deeply resonant book blurs together film scenes with Nutt's own vivid recollections, giving voice to all the near-universal but inexpressible horrors, large and small, of being a woman, being a survivor, being alive."—Amy Berkowitz, author of Tender Points
