Spinning Out: Motherhood, Myths, and Madness

Spinning Out: Motherhood, Myths, and Madness

On THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 7pm, Spark Central will host a book launch party for Alexandra Teague’s Spinning Tea Cups: A Mythical American Memoir, and Maya Jewell Zeller’s out takes/ glove box, featuring special guests and co-emcees, authors Kate Lebo and Laura Read. Lebo and Read will share briefly from their own work before welcoming Teague and Jewell Zeller.

Teague’s memoir, according to Kathryn Nuernberger, “recounts growing up in a family of ‘feral Victorians’ in the eccentric occult town of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. With essayistic ruminations on matters of faith, kitsch, mental health, gun violence, and memory, Spinning Tea Cups has all the page-turning pleasures of an engaging story, along with insight, wisdom, and exquisite prose.”

Jewell Zeller’s book of poems, according to Diane Seuss, “could be said to be an ‘oocyte opera’ of ovarian orbits and eddies, each month offering up its ‘vermilion funeral.’ Zeller’s surrealism is embodied and embedded in myth, fairy tale, the realm of the family, and the kingdom of the natural world.” Seuss called the book “the kind of deft performance only a mermaid or a mother could pull off.”

Both authors will read for 15 minutes and then be available to sign books, which will be available for purchase.

This event, complete with refreshments, is free and open to the public.
