Virtual Author Talk withErika L. Sanchez: “Crying in the Bathroom”
About This Event
Join us as we chat with award-winning writer Erika L. Sánchez about her utterly original, moving, and disarmingly funny memoir-in-essays “Crying in the Bathroom”.
Growing up as the daughter of Mexican immigrants in Chicago in the nineties, Erika Sánchez was a self-described pariah, misfit, and disappointment—a foul-mouthed, melancholic rabble-rouser who painted her nails black but also loved comedy, often laughing so hard with her friends that she had to leave her school classroom. Twenty-five years later, she’s now an award-winning novelist, poet, and essayist, but she’s still got an irrepressible laugh, an acerbic wit, and singular powers of perception about the world around her.
In these essays, Sánchez writes about everything from sex to white feminism to debilitating depression, revealing an interior life rich with ideas, self-awareness, and perception. Raunchy, insightful, unapologetic, and brutally honest, Crying in the Bathroom is Sánchez’s best—a book that will make you feel that post-confessional high that comes from talking for hours with your best friend.
