Sage and Taryn will be reading and tabling their books and zines. Local zinester, Nyky Gomez & Local author, Stephen Robinson will be joining them!
Taryn Hipp is an old tattooed college lady who has been making zines for more than half her life. Currently she writes the perzine “Lady Teeth,” a collection of stories about her experiences being depressed, getting divorced, getting sober, & falling the fuck in love. Every day is a beautiful gift & a terrifying adventure that continues to make her stronger. Heavy Hangs the Head is Taryn’s first book.
Heavy Hangs the head is is a memoir novella about a woman with an addiction, a mental illness & a feminist identity. This is the story of one woman’s journey from anxiety-ridden child to delinquent teenager to divorced alcoholic & how she turned all those years of experience into a beautiful existence. Heavy Hangs the Head is the story of the first thirty-four years of my life which included losing a parent, losing myself, losing everything & fighting back with the help of a community I didn’t realize I had. It’s about falling in love & getting hurt, falling apart & getting back up. Heavy Hangs the Head is my journey towards learning to overcome the things that hold me back & accepting that sometimes, it’s ok to not move at all.
Sage Adderley is a single (and very busy) mom of three humans and one cat. She is passionate about kindness, coffee, mental health, fat activism, and the DIY lifestyle. Sage is the owner of Sweet Candy Distro & Press, Sage’s Blog Tours, and writes the zines Tattooed Memoirs and Marked For Life. She is also the creator of FAT-TASTIC! Sage currently resides in the magical land of Olympia, Wa.
Her first novel is set to be released December 2013. It’s a young adult paranormal story called Invoking Nonna. Enjoy the book synopsis-
Maggie Sloan is a free-spirited teenager growing up in rural Georgia. Unlike her peers, Maggie is a witch and so is her mother. In addition to normal teenager rites of passage, she must learn about her family lineage and witchcraft. Her mother, Laura, keeps a tight lid on their family secrets – like the mysterious life and death of her grandmother who passed away before Maggie was born.
Practicing the craft will test solid friendships and introduce Maggie to new realms. While seeking the truth about herself and her family, Maggie is faced with danger from churchgoing classmates who will stop at nothing to make sure she is found out. Laura and Maggie strengthen their bond through witchcraft and work together to overcome their enemies. Are their magical gifts enough to keep them safe?
Invoking Nonna is the first book in the Triple Goddess series.
