A few months ago, my friend invited me to the opening of the 9/11 museum. I won’t say much about it here, but on my way there, I found this little personal memorial that someone had taped to the side of a building.
It touched me that no matter how many monuments are constructed in our grief, we still need our own way to show our love and respect. I <3 NY today and forever.

GRRRL’S GUIDE PREVIEW // TONIGHT:
GUILLOTINE PRESENTS JENNY ZHANG + KATE ZAMBRENO—SEPTEMBER 5TH
The first time I saw Jenny Zhang read at WORD bookshop (where this very discussion will take place) I became completely obsessed by her work. Jenny walks that perfect, beautiful line between caring about each and every one of us and also not giving a fuck. The genius publisher Sarah McCarry/Guillotine presents a conversation on “identitly, love, art, and living with rage” (swoon) between Zhang and author Kate Zambreno (Green Girl, Heroines), in conjunction with the release of Zhang’s chapbook, Hags.
