Inner Moonlight – Christine Suggs
September 13, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm CDT
Inner Moonlight is the monthly poetry series for the Wild Detectives! RSVP to meet us in the backyard at 7:30pm on Wednesday September 13th for a live reading from one featured writer, with a brief open mic to follow. Don’t worry, podcast fans! We will record the live show and release it as a podcast episode for y’all. We usually feature poets, but this month, we are proud to present graphic novelist Christine Suggs!
Christine Suggs is a comic artist and designer living in Dallas, TX with their wonderful partner, dog, and cat. Their debut book, ¡AY MIJA! is a YA graphic novel about spending their summers in Mexico as a teen and was released in spring 2023 from Little Brown Young Readers. Christine’s work explores the intersection of their identities, namely being a queer, fat, Latinx feminist who loves all things cute. Bonus facts: their day job is in app design, they are an avid Dungeons & Dragons player, and they’re quite obsessed with cats.
“Follow your inner moonlight, don’t hide the madness.”
—Allen Ginsberg, from On Being a Writer
