Book Release This Saturday for Erika Wurth's Crazy Horse's Girlfriend

Erika Wurth celebrates the release of her newest book, Crazy Horse's Girlfriend (Curbside Splendor Publishing), Saturday, Sept. 13 at City Lit Books, 2523 N. Kedzie, at 5pm.

Wurth, an Apache/Chickasaw/Cherokee raised outside of Denver, is a teacher of creative writing at Western Illinois University. Her debut poetry collection, Indian Trains, (West End Press) is about small town Indians, mixed-bloods of multiple tribes. In Crazy Horse's Girlfriend Wurth returns to explore the modern preconceptions of what it means to be Native American.

For the release she will be joined by fellow readers Lindsay Hunter (Ugly Girls out on Farrar, Straus and Giroux is due out on Nov. 4), Samantha Irby (Meaty, also on Curbside), and Jac Jemc (A Different Bed Every Time, out on Dzanc Books in October). The event is free. Books will be available for purchase.
