Beloved underground author Michelle Tea (Valencia, Black Wave, et al.) is in town with her first children’s book, ASTRO BABY, which marries astrology with psychedelic imagery by Mike Perry (Emmy-winning animator for Broad City). The book is gender-inclusive, perceptive, and a no-brainer gift for Astro Babies of all ages. Tea will read the book and discuss her other profound innovation in children’s literacy—creating the Drag Queen Story Hour!
About the book: Astro Baby is for newborns who like to gaze at bright colors, toddlers who are fascinated by images of babies and animals, older children able to comprehend the concepts put forth by astrology, and grown-ups who are obsessed with their star signs.
About the author: Michelle Tea is the author of six memoirs (including Against Memoir), four novels (including Black Wave), and the creator of multiple cultural interventions such as Drag Queen Story Hour, RADAR Productions, Sister Spit, Mutha Magazine, and the queer imprint Amethyst Editions.
