Sister Mischief is a poignant and often hilarious story of four high school friends in a Minneapolis suburb. These young women are nerds and... they are rebels. Their love for hip hop brings them into conflict with the local Christian fundamentalists and they are faced with the challenge to buckle or fight. Along the way protagonist Esme falls in love and suddenly is forced to contend with homophobia in the midst of everything else. Join us as Laura reads and raps from the world's first interracial gay hip-hop love story for teens. She'll discuss important themes from the book including goats covered in Crisco, the pathos of marching bands, lesbians in treehouses, and total word nerdery. Laura will answer virtually any question you throw at her about her "clam-jamming, ruckus-making pursuit of sexual and musical justice.” Laura Goode's SISTER MISCHIEF, was released by Candlewick Press on July 12. Her poems and essays have appeared in The Rumpus, The Los Angeles Review of Books, The Faster Times, Boston Review, Denver Quarterly, Dossier, Slope, Fawlt, and other publications. She was raised outside Minneapolis, received her BA and MFA from Columbia University and now lives in San Francisco. Follow her on Twitter @lauragoode and visit www.lauragoode.com for total chaos.
