It is once again the time of year to herald the advent of the year’s most exciting parades, a vaguely martial, yet festive, and certainly melancholy (because all parades end) ambience and that will totally define our next edition of ANIMAL FARM, NYC’s destination for the newest and best satirical and/or critical writing in any genre.

JUST KIDDING! On Tuesday, November 18, the FARM will include that, but also lots of other ingredients, components, and elements from our distinguished and accomplished guests, writers ALEXANDRA KLEEMAN, SASHA FLETCHER, AUTUMN WAKEFIELD-MADRANO, and ALANA MASSEY.

ALEXANDRA KLEEMAN lives in Staten Island near the ferries. Her work has appeared in The Paris Review, Zoetrope, Guernica, and Tin House, and is forthcoming in n+1. Her first novel, You Too Can Have A Body Like Mine, will be published by Harper in 2015.

SASHA FLETCHER is the author of it is going to be a good year (Big Lucks Books, 2015), one novella, and several chapbooks of poetry. He lives in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn.

AUTUMN WAKEFIELD-MADRANO’s essays have appeared in Ms., Salon, Marie Claire, The Guardian, and more. Her blog on personal appearance and sociology, The Beheld, is syndicated at The New Inquiry. She’s currently working on a book about the role beauty plays in women’s lives, to be published by Simon & Schuster in spring 2016.
