William Shunn will read from his new memoir, The Accidental Terrorist, which describes his harrowing and at times hilarious escape from Mormonism, a journey that led from the oil fields of Alberta through a Canadian jail and ultimately to freedom from authority.

Nancy Hightower will read from her poetry collection, The Acolyte, which rewrites biblical narratives from a haunted, feminist perspective, effectively wrenching them out of politicized right wing rhetoric. Think Anne Lamott meets Stephen King.
