Michelle Tea at Book Passage

Join Bay Area literary living legend Michelle Tea at this special young adult event celebrating the release of her new book, Girl at the Bottom of the Sea. You may know Michelle from her The Bold Italic (RIP) stories or are perhaps you’ve attended a RADAR Reading (which she founded), or maybe her work is completely new to you and if that’s the case, well then, you’re in for a treat. Girl at the Bottom of the Sea is the follow-up to Mermaid in Chelsea Creek and is set to be the second installment in a trilogy. The book details the journeys of Sophie Swankowski and her gritty Mermaid guardian, Syrena –– “mermaid” in Polish –– as they embark on a transatlantic voyage from Massachusetts to Syrena’s homeland. ZYZZYVA calls the novel "a refreshing breath of air in the world of YA, equal parts eerie, heartbreaking, and fantastical,” but personally speaking, Tea’s work is never a miss.
