Brad Gooch and David Crabb will read from and discuss their respective memoirs. Brad Gooch’s Smash Cut is a searing memoir of life in New York City in the 1970s and 1980s, and Crabb’s Bad Kid is a hilarious, poignant story about a boy growing up gay (and Goth) in San Antonio, Texas at a time and place where it was hard to be one, near impossible to be the other.
