“Girls I’ve Run Away With” release party with Rhiannon Argo!

Friday, September 6, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Come celebrate the book launch of award-winning writer Rhiannon Argo’s newest novel “Girls I’ve Run Away With”. Also featuring readings from Kat Marie Yoas and Juliana Delgado!

Nice words about the book:

“Girls I’ve Run Away With reads like the director’s cut of an Aerosmith video, but with girls who would just drink a pint of whiskey and pierce their belly buttons themselves.”

—Cassie J. Sneider, author of Fine Fine Music

“Rhiannon Argo captures the tough reality of queer teens with such playful sweetness you almost forget to worry about them as they take off on a string of outlandish, take-no-prisoners attempts to save themselves from a world of cruddy grown-ups hell-bent on killing beauty and love. I couldn’t put this book down!”

—Michelle Tea, author of Mermaid in Chelsea Creek

“Argo shows us a sharp, youthful milieu. This is a hostile setting for skateboarding, school skipping, Lo Flynn to fall in love with rebellious Savannah Blanco. Girls I’ve Run Away With affirms the need for queer youth to be able to come out with dignity. Why wasn’t this invaluable book around when I was a teenager?”

—Amber Dawn, author of Sub Rosa

“Argo wields words into magical clusters of thought that are both beautiful ornaments and dangerous weapons.”

—Cristy C. Road, author of Spit and Passion & Bad Habits
