"Zombie Hookers of Hudson"--that's the title of Maggie Estep's contribution to Marijuana Chronicles, a collection of new short stories all of which have something to do with pot. Estep, who lives in Hudson, has written a story that is set in Hudson and draws from the seamier side of Hudson's rich history. Other contributors to the collection are Joyce Carol Oates, the most famous among them, and Edward M. Gomez, who lived in Hudson at the turn of the millennium and created the Hudson River Herald, a broadside that focused on local environmental issues.
You can hear Estep read from "Zombie Hookers of Hudson" this Sunday, August 4, at 4 p.m., at The Spotty Dog. Also reading their stories from the book will be Linda Yablonsky and and Jonathan Santlofer, the editor of the collection as well as a contributor. The ensemble August Wells will provide musical entertainment, and the authors will be signing books after the reading.
