Sean will be reading from the book followed by a conversation lead by Molly Shannon.

"Sean Wilsey puts the fire out with wine, as he reports was done after the 1906 Earthquake in San Francisco. To douse a fire with wine, as I take it, is to respond with something unexpected, and a little extravagant, but in that moment, a tool at hand. Wilsey is playful, maximal, wonkily earnest and fun to read, as he ranges over the varied landscapes of this book." — Rachel Kushner

Sean Wilsey is the author of Oh the Glory of it All, and the editor of two collections.

Molly Shannon is an actress and comedian known for being a cast member of SNL and starring in Superstar, Year of the Dog, among many roles in film and TV.
