Various locations Across Seattle
Sept 12–14, 2019
This symposium will be dedicated to the important experimental and feminist author and proto-Riot Grrrl Kathy Acker, who came to Seattle's Center on Contemporary Art for residencies in 1980 and 1989. She worked on two important novels while in Seattle, Blood and Guts in High School and Great Expectations. The gathering is co-organized by University of Cologne's Daniel Schulz and Fantagraphics's Larry Reid, who'll be revealing a previously unpublished manuscript by Acker from 1980.
