Event Description:

PC Rising and Changing Hands Bookstore have teamed up to bring you a free workshop from Joseph Cassara. The workshop runs from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

The topic of Cassara’s workshop is “world building”. Joseph shares his process for researching and building rich, authentic worlds through his prose. This exclusive workshop is available to all PC students, faculty and staff.
After the workshop, stick around to hear Cassara read from his new novel! In addition to Cassara, you will hear readings from two other exciting emerging authors—Tommy Orange and Fatima Farheen Mirza. This reading starts at 7:00 PM.

Joseph’s new book, “The House of Impossible Beauties,” is a gritty and gorgeous debut that follows a cast of gay and transgender club kids navigating the Harlem ball scene of the 1980s and ’90s. Find out more about the book here. https://www.josephcassara.com/book/
