Laura Lee Bahr in Spain 2018

Laura Lee Bahr recently was a guest of the Celsius 232 Fantasy, Horror, and Science Fiction Festival is Avilés, Spain. There she gave an author Q & A and book signing, as well as a panel with Hugo Camacho of Orciny Press on Bizarro literature.

While in Spain, Laura did a book tour for the release of “Porno Religioso Improvisado” (the Spanish translation of her second novel, “Long-Form Religious Porn”). The “Improvsado” book tour kicked off in Madrid, where it took a ceremonial turn with an improvised “Wedding” where Laura officiated the “marriage””of publisher Hugo Camacho. After a trip across Spain and a reading/signing at Librería Gigamesh, she was a guest of the debut Convivencias Bizarras in Barcelona. At the Convivencias Bizarras she gave a workshop on “Writing in the Language of Dreams”—the workshop she first taught as part of the MAD about Words workshop while writer-in-residence at the Kerouac House.

I loved the display at the Gigamesh Bookstore! (“Fantasma”, my first novel translated in Spanish the center)
