Nancy Agabian, Queens College professor and recent recipient of the Excellence in Teaching by Adjunct Faculty award (congratulations!), will be reading tomorrow night! Be there or be a regular quadrilateral whose area is one side squared.
Nancy Agabian is the author of Princess Freak, a collection of poems and performance texts on sexuality and rage, and Me as her again, a memoir that casts her queer coming-of-age within her Armenian-American family history. She’s currently working on a nonfiction book about the year she observed artists fighting for social change in post-Soviet Armenia. The lead singer of the folk-punk duo Guitar Boy, she built a small following in the late ’90s by writing and screaming songs about the Kmart Portrait Studio, Norman Rockwell, and refusing to be a victim. She teaches creative nonfiction at Queens College, NYU, and from her home. Visit nancyagabian.com for more info.
