6:30pm | bar opens
At our next Lobby Call event, Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz, will be joined by former SPIN editor Charles Aaron to talk about her first book of poetry, Mouthguard.
“Like crying alone in a movie theater, Mouthguard is tender, self-deprecating, nostalgic, and unavoidably romantic. In the end, we’re all simultaneously comforted and freaked out by the idea that there is something bigger and deeper in the quiet spaces that operate within us, something just out of reach. This book gives us the language to describe this, a solid place we can remember together.” ~ Gramma Press
6:30pm | Bar opens with conversation, reading, and Q&A to follow.
Copies of Mouthguard will be available for purchase courtesy of The Regulator and Sadie will be on hand for signings.
Sadie Dupuis is the guitarist, vocalist & songwriter of rock band Speedy Ortiz. She’s also the producer & multi-instrumentalist behind pop project Sad13. Sadie heads the record label Wax Nine, has written for outlets including Spin, Nylon, and Playboy, and holds an MFA in poetry from UMass Amherst. Mouthguard is her first book.
Charles Aaron grew up in North Carolina, went away for a long time, and is now back, living in Durham. For 20 years, he held a variety of jobs at SPIN, from lowly writer to figurehead Editorial Director. At SPIN in 2008-2009, he met Sadie Dupuis, who was an intern. He soon realized, due to her talent, work ethic, winning personality, and general artistic awesomeness, that she would render him and his colleagues obsolete.
