Join the Flagstaff Public Library in welcoming local author Allison Gruber for a special event next week.

On Tuesday, March 21, from 7-8 pm, Gruber will share selections from her books as part of the Author Series events. She will read from the autobiographical essays in “You’re Not Edith,” and from her forthcoming collection, “Transference,” as she discusses crafting her written work, navigating the hazy line between memory and “fact” and the role of “identity politics” in literature.

Gruber is an essayist and educator, and she received praise for her first book, “You’re Not Edith,” from Booklist, NewPages, and Publishers Weekly. It was also a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award, and her other essays have appeared in The Huffington Post, Pithead Chapel, The Hairpin, Foliate Oak, The Literary Review, Gravel Magazine and more.

 The downtown library is located at 300 W. Aspen Ave.

Due to subject matter, this event may not be suitable for people under the age of 14.For more information about this free event, call 213-2331 or visit

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
