Miranda July: The First Bad Man

A special in conversation event with the acclaimed filmmaker, artist and bestselling author.

Join us to celebrate the release of Miranda July’s debut novel, The First Bad Man. Tender, gripping, slyly hilarious, infused with raging sexual obsession and fierce maternal love, The First Bad Man establishes July as an original, iconic, and important literary voice.

July wrote, directed, and starred in The Future, and her first feature-length film, Me and You and Everyone We Know, received both a special jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival and the Caméra d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Her collection of stories, No One Belongs Here More Than You, won the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award and has been published in 20 countries.

Miranda July’s ability to pervert norms while embracing what makes us normal is astounding… She will make you laugh, cringe and recognize yourself in a woman you never planned to be.” Lena Dunham
