The Most Beautiful Rot | Ocean Capewell (Book Party)
Wednesday, May 21, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A night of lively queer storytelling in celebration of local author Ocean Capewell’s recent novel, “The Most Beautiful Rot.” There will be snacks!
‘The Most Beautiful Rot’ is about solidarity, kale, girl love, and the families we make when our own leave us behind. Also: overflowing dumpsters, stupid men, catastrophic illness, hot queer makeouts, and a compost pile gone horribly wrong; a testament to the act of digging through the bleakness of everyday life to find something beautiful growing underneath, something that you weren’t quite expecting.
Ocean Capewell has been writing since she could hold a pen. She was born in Queens, raised on Long Island, learned how to edit at SUNY Purchase and became a nicer person in Pittsburgh, PA. She currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she is a crisis residential treatment counselor, tarot reader, prison abolitionist, and storyteller.
