    WORD Presents July Westhale for TRAILER TRASH

    03/16/2018 - 7:00pm

    Trailer Trash is a book about the cotton-country of Riverside County, Southern California, in 1980s/90s. A book about poverty, ravaged landscape, and gender, it touches on a fuller, dustier California than Hollywood would have you believe. It is not only a book of class and struggle, it is also a book of triumph, beauty, and constructed worlds. It interfaces with grief and sanctuary in equal measure, creating a deeper understanding of origin stories. Never be ashamed of where you come from, these poems say, even when where you come from is broken, and dry, and made of tin.
