Bad Advice from Bad Women returns to Green Apple Books on the Park for another night of incendiary readings from some of the best women writing today. Readers include Caille Millner, Zoé Samudzi, Rahawa Haile, Laura Frost, Davey Davis and their host Charlotte Shane.

About The Writers:

  • Caille Millner is the author of a memoir, The Golden Road: Notes on my Gentrification, from the Penguin Press. Her short fiction and essays have been been in the Paris Review Daily and Best American Short Stories 2016. She is a weekly columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle.
  • Zoé Samudzi is a writer, picture-taker, and Sociology PhD student. She’s interested, more than anything, in truths: how people make them, how people understand them, how people tell & disseminate them, how they become Truths.
  • Rahawa Haile is an Eritrean-American writer of short stories and essays who hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2016. Find her on Twitter at @RahawaHaile.
  • Laura Frost is a San Francisco based writer and scholar whose work on gender, sex, literature, and art has appeared in the LA Times, Bookforum, Quartz, VICE, The Los Angeles Review of Books, the San Francisco Chronicle/Examiner, and elsewhere.
  • Davey Davis writes about culture, sexuality, technology, and genderqueer embodiment. Occasionally, they also write fiction. Their short story “Difficult Women” received Honorable Mention for Glimmer Train’s 2014 Short Story Award for New Writers.
  • Charlotte Shane is an essayist, author, and co-founder of TigerBee Press. The Guardian likened her written work to Charles Dickens, and Vice called her book Prostitute Laundry “addictive [and] intimate.” Just like an opium den.
