Book Launch Party for Elissa Washuta’s My Body is a Book of Rules

Former Made at Hugo House fellow Elissa Washuta will read from her new memoir, My Body is a Book of Rules, about her struggles with bipolar disorder, sexual assault, and antipsychotic medication. Kirkus Reviews calls the book “A fever dream of darkly personal memories and musings from the shadowy corners of sexual violence and mental illness.”

Former Hugo House program director and writer Brian McGuigan will conduct a Q&A with Elissa.

The bar will be open, books will be for sale, and a spread of all the things Elissa can’t eat (listed in her book) will be the sustenance for the evening.
