Reading This Thursday in Brooklyn!

Hi All,

I will be reading a sampling of my personal writing about my dad dying as well as my submission from the second issue of The Worst this Thursday at the Storefront Gallery in Brooklyn. If you're in the area stop by (and you can pick up a copy of the zine there as well for 5 bucks!). Hope to see some of you there!

Kathleen McIntyre lives in queens and goes to school for social group work. Since her dad died in 2001 she's been puzzling over ways that people can help each other heal. She edits "The Worst," a compilation zine on grief and loss, releasing Issue 2 this past September. For fun and survival, she's in For the Birds feminist collective and she dances whenever she can.
Tim Gomez is from the land of milk and honey, otherwise known as California. He hates newborn babies and Christmas Day. He is also a taco connoisseur. He writes about none of these things.
Cynthia Ann is a writer and native New Yorker who currently lives in Brooklyn and is working on her MFA thesis in creative nonfiction at Sarah Lawrence College. She is a co-founder of the feminist collective For The Birds and has recently released the first issue of an oral history zine called Habits of Being. She has been published in Feminist Review, Drawn and Quarterly, and the For The Birds blog.

Kathleen, it was so lovely to see and hear you, I'm so glad that I was there last night!

Some of your piece was difficult to hear, yes. But I mean that in the best way possible -- you really got to some painful truths about what losing a parent can feel like, and said some things that are so hard to express. I'm so grateful that you are saying things that I can't; it makes me feel like one day, I'll be able to.

Take care of yourself and hope to hear/see you and/or read your work again soon!
