Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore – The Freezer Door
November 16 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore will read from and host a discussion about her latest book, The Freezer Door. “The Freezer Door records the ebb and flow of desire in daily life. Crossing through loneliness in search of communal pleasure in Seattle, Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore exposes the failure and persistence of queer dreams, the hypocritical allure of gay male sexual culture, and the stranglehold of the suburban imagination over city life. Ferocious and tender, The Freezer Door offers a complex meditation on the trauma and possibility of searching for connection in a world that relentlessly enforces bland norms of gender, sexual, and social conformity while claiming to celebrate diversity.”
This event is co-sponsored by CLAGS with the Women’s and Gender Studies Program, the Student Intercultural Union, Safe Zone, the Transdisciplinary Studies Institute, and WSQ.
