“Vicious Red”/ “Daughter” Book Tour with Janice Lee, Anna Joy Springer and Leon Baham

Jaded Ibis authors Janice Lee and Anna Joy Springer, plus writer Leon Baham, read queer and/or weird texts that appeal to readers with wild minds. Enjoy references to cognitive science and cognitive metaphysics, hyper-ethical perversity, language like chewed glass, moms, ponyboys, The Goddess and an eerily familiar semiotics cult.

The reading is FREE, and books will be for sale by Jaded Ibis. The bar will be open.

Janice Lee is the author of “Kerotakis” (Dog Horn Press, 2010), a multidisciplinary exploration of cyborgs, brains and the stakes of consciousness, and “Daughter” (Jaded Ibis, 2011). She can be found online at
