Author Reading: "Shine of the Ever" by Claire Rudy Foster

Shine of the Ever is a literary mix tape of queer voices out of grunge-era Portland. By turns tender and punk-tough, fierce and loving, this collection of linked short stories explores what binds a community of queer and trans people as they negotiate love, screwing up and learning to forgive themselves for being young and sometimes foolish.

About the Author:
Claire Rudy Foster is a queer, nonbinary single parent in recovery. Their short story collection, I’ve Never Done This Before, was published to warm acclaim in 2016. With four Pushcart Prize nominations, Foster’s writing has appeared in McSweeney’s, Catapult, and many other journals. Their nonfiction work has reached millions of readers in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Narratively, among others. Foster lives and writes in Portland, Oregon.

Foster was recently featured on The Rumpus and The Good Men Project, and will be featured in Apparel for Authors on dressing as a trans man.
