JULIA FIERRO discusses her new novel THE GYPSY MOTH SUMMER, with J. RYAN STRADAL, MEG HOWERY and GABRIEL PACKARD

JULIA FIERRO discusses her new novel THE GYPSY MOTH SUMMER, with J. RYAN STRADAL, MEG HOWERY and GABRIEL PACKARD
Event on 2017-06-28 19:30:00

The Gypsy Moth Summer (St. Martin's Press)

Julia Fierro has become a New York literary scene staple as the founder of the Sackett Street Writers’ Workshop, which has been dubbed a “top alternative to MFA programs” (Poets & Writers). Her first novel Cutting Teeth debuted as one of the most anticipated novels of 2014, and received rave reviews from The New Yorker, Entertainment Weekly, and Oprah.com. With her sophomore novel, The Gypsy Moth Summer, Fierro turns her masterful storytelling to the fictional community of Avalon Island, loosely based on Long Island, in 1992 and the defining summer that will set the course for tragedy in hierarchical society.

The summer the Gypsy Moths descended, an even more toxic pest was spreading its way through the people of Avalon. East Avalon is the upper crust, built with generations of military engineers who had exchanged their Navy whites and blues for suits and offices, while West Avalon families hailed from generations of factory workers. 

In the summer of 1992, Maddie LaRosa tries to figure out how to survive high school and its queen bee, Bitsy, and worries about maintaining her East Avalon persona and picture-perfect family life. Meanwhile, Leslie Day Marshall, daughter of Avalon Island’s most established waspy monarch, has just moved back home with her husband, Jules, who is black, and their kids. Their move from a one bedroom apartment in “the City” to “The Castle” isn’t as big as the change from the melting pot of New York City to the homogeneity of East Avalon. Jules and Leslie’s presence triggers tensions, romances, and unusual alliances that simmer all summer and lead to violence that leaves the community atomized forever.

Praise for Gypsy Moth Summer 

“The Gypsy Moth Summer plunges the reader into a hazy, hot daydream of hidden truth, scandal, and racial prejudice. With bold strokes, Julia Fierro creates a vivid world where privilege and class are merely a veneer to distract from the cracks beneath the surface.”– Jodi Picoult, NYT bestselling author of Small Great Things and Leaving Time

"In her hugely engaging novel, The Gypsy Moth Summer, Julia Fierro brings a light touch to bear on the most important subjects: social class, race, family, generational conflict, anger and forgiveness. It is a sterling example of how fiction can entertain us and at the same time inspire us to think about the things we urgently need to consider, now more than ever."—Francine Prose, author of Mister Monkey

"This novel shakes and stirs family saga and summer romance upside down. The irresistible story-telling brings to life each character and Fierro doesn't just observe, she knows. She gives us a particular and narrow neighborhood, and like all great novelists, she gives us the world"—Amy Bloom, bestselling author of Away

"What kind of brilliant writer can go from Cutting Teeth, a bitingly funny and inventive debut about modern day NYC parents to a 1992 island world that is so real and so alive, that you can feel the brush of gypsy moth wings and the longing, and simmering danger of a multiracial family disrupting a white conservative island? Masterpiece is often a word that is casually tossed around, but it fits Fierro’s work, which is so richly alive, so poetic, it is truly Shakespearean tragedy. I had a sense of wonder that someone could craft a novel as perfect as this one, but then I remembered this is a Julia Fierro novel, so the only answer to that wonder is of course, of course, of course, she could—and she did"—Caroline Leavitt, author of the New York Times bestsellers Pictures of You, Is This Tomorrow, and Cruel Beautiful World

"The Gypsy Moth Summer gathers all of life in its wonderfully confident reach: the buzzing energy of youth, the fraught hope of adulthood, the remorseless clarity of old age. Fierro's thoroughly entertaining storytelling doesn’t prevent her from taking on weighty subjects like race and class in America or delivering a rebuke of the lives of privilege that she chronicles with such anthropological accuracy. We are deeply invested in these characters around whom an air of tragic destiny hangs, and the pages fly by as the book hurtles toward its devastating conclusion."​ —​Matthew Thomas, New York Times bestselling author of We Are Not Ourselves

"Julia Fierro’s marvelous The Gypsy Moth Summer is a novel to slowly savor, settling in with her characters as you would old friends, cherishing every sentence, every turn of plot. Rarely does one encounter a novel this entertaining, which also speaks to the complicated truths about race and class at the heart of our country’s tangled history."—Joanna Rakoff, author of My Salinger Year

“Julia Fierro's The Gypsy Moth Summer is a deeply satisfying tale of family, first love, and home. The world of Avalon Island is lush, inviting, and deeply complicated, full of the same contradictions that we grapple with day to day. It's a meditation on what makes a community and a reminder that the past is never past and home is a place that is both beautiful and heartbreaking. “—Kaitlyn Greenidge, author of We Love You, Charlie Freeman

"Julia Fierro's second book is a luminous, urgent novel about the forces that shape us all: where we grow up; whether we are loved by our parents or understood by our peers; how class, power, and money may cast our fates. With gathering awe, I found in Avalon Island’s richly depicted society a microcosm of our own. I rooted for the lovers at the thrumming heart of The Gypsy Moth Summer with the hungry turn of every page"—Sophie McManus, author of The Unfortunates

Julia Fierro is the author of the novels The Gypsy Moth Summer and Cutting Teeth. Her work has been published in The MillionsPoets & WritersBuzzfeedGlamour, and other publications, and she has been profiled in The Observer and The Economist.

Born and raised in Minnesota, he now lives in Los Angeles and has worked as a TV producer, notably for the History Channel’s Ice Road Truckers and Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch.

He is Bob Dylan's favorite singer/songwriter – high praise from the best of us, applauded by the rest of us." – Kris Kristofferson"I've always been trying to write songs like Lightfoot.

Carlos del Junco

Carlos del Junco
Event on 2018-03-23 19:30:00
It's probably a good thing Carlos wasn't there when the harmonica appeared in North America in the 1860s. Neil Young and Bob Dylan can probably roll with it when he says they are very mediocre harmonica players. Aspiring harmonica players Wyatt Earp and Billy the Kid might have overreacted and pulled out their pistols…To say he plays the harmonica is like saying "Jimi Hendrix plays guitar". He blows the blues harp through a prism — suddenly it seems he's holding every color in the musical rainbow right there in his hands.Simultaneously sophisticated and raw, his playing blurs the boundaries between blues and jazz (hence the name for his band “The Blues Mongrels”). The emphasis is on blues, but Carlos and his band are not afraid to merrily traipse off in other directions delivering a seamless fusion of New Orleans second line grooves, swing, Latin, hip-hop or ska melodies, to swampy roots rock.Born in Havana, Cuba, del Junco (loosely translated "of the reeds") immigrated with his family at the age of one. He bent his first note on a harmonica when he was fourteen, making his debut with his high school math teacher at a student talent night. In his early 20's del Junco was immersed in a visual arts career; he graduated with honours from a four year programme, majoring in sculpture ( click here to see photos ) at the Ontario College of Art. Sculpture has definitely had an influence on his outlook on music: "Music is just a different way of creating textures and shapes."Playing a ten hole diatonic harmonica, Carlos has developed the unique ability to play chromatically by using a recently developed "overblow" technique taught to him by jazz virtuoso Howard Levy. Overall, this approach to the diatonic harmonica, although much more difficult to achieve, is in many ways more expressive and communicative than the mechanized tone produced by the chromatic harmonica . Carlos is one of the few pioneers of this overblow method, bringing musical credibility to what has still been considered by many in the music industry – a fringe folk instrument. The sophisticated sound produced by del Junco is at once sensitive, soulful, and sexy while never forgetting the rawness inherent in blues music. For more information on Carlos del Junco click here
