*A reading and signing with Olivia Clare, author of DISASTERS IN THE FIRST WORLD*

Olivia Clare’s delightfully strange and tender debut collection traces the impact of larger-than-life forces on everyday people. From siblings whose relationship is as fragile as glass, to a woman grappling with both an emotional and physical drought, to a superstitious spouse fearful of misfortune, DISASTERS IN THE FIRST WORLD explores the real and the imagined, environmental and man-made calamities, and the human need to comprehend the unknown.

Olivia Clare is a fiction writer and poet. She was raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and has since lived in California, Iowa, New York, and Nevada. She currently lives in Texas. Her short story collection, DISASTERS IN THE FIRST WORLD, was published by Grove Atlantic/Black Cat in June 2017. Her novel from Grove Atlantic will follow. She is a recipient of a 2014 Rona Jaffe Foundation Writer’s Award, and winner of a 2014 O. Henry Prize for her first published story, “Pétur.” Her stories have appeared in Granta, Southern Review, n+1, Catapult, Boston Review, Kenyon Review, and elsewhere.
