    BookPeople Presents: An Evening With Miranda July

    At once a performance artist, director, screenwriter, actor, and author, Miranda July brings her distinctive voice to every project she does. Her second novel All Fours follows a semi-famous artist who leaves her husband and child to drive cross-country, containing what publisher Riverhead Books calls “perfect comic timing, unabashed curiosity about human intimacy, and palpable delight in pushing boundaries.” Hear Austinite Dalia Azim interview her, a decorated author in her own right and the COO of the Texas Book Festival. Azim’s 2022 debut novel, Country of Origin, follows a family’s multigenerational saga amid the political revolution of 1950s Egypt. After the interview, July will be signing books if you have purchased a Signing Line Access ticket (which includes a copy of the book). Seating is first-come, first-served, so get there early! – Lina Fisher

    Window Dressing XXXV: Rebecca Marino

    Between gallery installations, ICOSA Collective utilizes their window space facing the Canopy thoroughfare to showcase short-running art shows. These artists often experiment with the limits of their window framings while their work remains displayed 24/7. ICOSA Collective is proud to present this week the latest multimedia work from visual artist/curator Rebecca Marino, “DOGSBODY IS DEAD.” The Austinite takes inspiration from author Kathrine Dunn’s semi-autobiographical work Attic, which delves into life as a young woman incarcerated in the 1960s Midwest. The displayed art, ICOSA Collective promises, will unpack “the emotional/ behavioral standards placed upon women and the often tragic results that ensue.” – James Scott
    Through May 20; opening reception: Sun. 19
