When: Fri., May 20, 7 p.m. 2011

Mazza reads from her latest novel, Various Men Who Knew Us As Girls. Mazza uses the ponderous ramblings of "Hester Smith" (a pseudonym used, we're told, because "this is a true story") to explore difficult questions about the sexual agency of girls, the hypocrisy of moral indignation, and the ways men manipulate women. —Kathie Bergquist Joint appearance with Elise Blackwell.
