The Guerrilla Lit Reading Series is pleased to announce that our reading scheduled for Wednesday, October 26th will feature Anne Heltzel, Ned Beauman, and Eric Nelson.
Anne Heltzel moved to New York City in 2006 to earn her MFA in Creative Writing from The New School. Soon she was swept into the world of publishing — first at a literary agency and later at Penguin Group (where she works as an editor today). In 2009 she moved to India to travel and write and fumble through a disastrous relationship. That is when and where she wrote Circle Nine, her first novel for young adults. Now she lives in Brooklyn with her dog, Mochi, a connoisseur of ice cream and sweat socks.
Ned Beauman was born in London and lives in New York. His debut novel Boxer, Beetle, which is published in the US by Bloomsbury, was described by the New York Times as “funny, raw and stylish”, and was shortlisted last year for the Guardian First Book Award and the Desmond Elliott Prize. He has also written for the Guardian, the Financial Times, the Sunday Times and plenty of magazines.
The son of a single mother nurse, Eric Nelson came of age in the concrete jungle of New Jersey, eating iron ore and spitting out grenades of Mickey’s Malt. Nelson’s fiction and non-fiction has appeared in Volume 1 Brooklyn, Constellation Magazine and Zine World; and his book of short stories, The Silk City Series, was released in 2010 by Knickerbocker Press. Nelson is also co-curator of the Brooklyn reading series, Fireside Follies, a volunteer at ABC No Rio and a founding member of the 1441 Writers Collective. He is currently trying to sell his first novel.
