Gay City Arts proudly presents Tara Hardy in 'Why Should Just the Pretty Survive?'

'WHY SHOULD JUST
THE PRETTY SURVIVE?'
CALAMUS AUDITORIUM
AT GAY CITY
December 8 & 9
(doors at 6:30pm; show at 7pm)

Come help Gay City Arts' Director Tara Hardy celebrate her book winning a Washington State Book Award! She'll perform her one-woman show, 'Why Should Just the Pretty Survive?' that arose from her book My, My, My, My, My (Write Bloody Press, 2016) which is largely inspired by her experiences with illness and of having come face-to-face with her mortality.

This production explores what it means to have a body and for that body's most important work to be executing the exquisite, temporary and glorious event of being alive.

Joining her on stage will be a luminous cast of poets and musicians performing original and collaborative works, including: Carolyn Agee, Ebo Barton, Michele Bombardier, Jourdan Imani Keith, Tobi Hill-Meyer and billie rain.

The show will be presented at the Calamus Auditorium at Gay City (517 E Pike St).

TICKETS: General Admission: $10 (or free with book purchase) | Seniors and People With Disabilities: $7 (or free with book purchase) | No one turned away for lack of funds.

Tara Hardy is the working-class, Queer, Femme, chronically-ill/disabled founder of Bent Writing Institute for LGBTIQ writers in Seattle. Her book My, My, My, My, My is a 2017 Washington State Book Award Winner. Tara grew up under the great big sky of Michigan, but now writes at the majestic helm of Mount Rainier in Seattle. Her first book of poems Bring Down the Chandeliers, published by Write Bloody Press in 2011, primarily addresses being a father-daughter incest survivor. Tara holds an MFA from Vermont College and is a former Richard Hugo House Writer-in-Residence, former Seattle Poet Populist and alumnae of Hedgebrook. She has been an instructor at Seattle Central College, Richard Hugo House and Path With Art. She is also the Arts Director at Gay City.
