About the Readers.
ALISSON WOOD is the founder and Editor in Chief of Pigeon Pages, a NYC literary journal and reading series. Being Lolita, from Flatiron Books at Macmillan, is her first book. Her award-winning writing has been published in The New York Times, The Paris Review, The Rumpus, Vogue, and Vanity Fair.

ERIN KHAR’S debut memoir, Strung Out: One Last Hit and Other Lies that Nearly Killed Me appeared on most anticipated lists from The Rumpus, SELF, Apple Books, Goodreads, Bitch Media, Alma, and others. Of the book, The New York Times writes, “Khar’s buoyant writing doesn’t get mired in her dark subject matter. There is an honesty here that can only come from, to put it in the language of 12-step programs, a ‘searching and fearless moral inventory.’ This is a story she needed to tell; and the rest of the country needs to listen.” Erin writes the popular weekly advice column, Ask Erin, and her personal essays have appeared in SELF, Marie Claire, Salon, HuffPost, The Rumpus, Longreads, LA Weekly, Esquire, Cosmopolitan, and others. She lives in New York City.
