Renee Simms (local author) book launch: MEET BEHIND MARS

May 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Join us on Thursday, May 3 at 7 PM at King’s Books as we celebrate the release of the debut short story collection of Renee Simms, MEET BEHIND MARS. She will be joined by poet Fernando Pérez (A Song of Dismantling), with music by DJ Smokey Wonder. MEET BEHIND MARS is a revealing look at how geography, memory, ancestry, and desire influence our personal relationships. The stories in this collection span forty years and two continents and range in structure from epistolary to traditionally structured realism, with touches of absurdity, humor, and magic.

Renee Simms is assistant professor of African American studies and contributing faculty to English studies at University of Puget Sound. Her work has been widely published, appearing in Callaloo, Southwest Review, North American Review, Salon, and elsewhere. She received a 2017 National Endowment for the Arts fellowship.
