We are back with another iteration of Nerdette Book Club! It’s like a book club, only you can take all the time you need to finish the book. This month, our panel is discussing Gwen E. Kirby’s debut short story collection S*** Cassandra Saw. The stories vary in structure, time period and genre, spanning from a Yelp review of a seafood restaurant to a fictional take on pirate Mary Read to a world where radioactive cockroach women snap back at catcallers. It’s a wild, hilarious ride.
Our two readers this month are Glory Edim, host of the new podcast called Well Read Black Girl, and Jess Zimmerman, author of Women and other Monsters.
