Kristi Coulter At Volume Reading Series In Hudson

Sep 7, 2018

Kristi Coulter inspired and incensed the internet when she wrote about what happened when she stopped drinking. "Nothing Good Can Come from This" is her debut essay collection by a keen-eyed observer no longer numbed into complacency.

When Kristi stopped drinking, she started noticing things. Like when you give up a debilitating habit, it leaves a space, one that can’t easily be filled by mocktails or ice cream or sex or crafting. And when you cancel "Rosé Season" for yourself, you’re left with just Summer, and that’s when you notice that the women around you are tanked, that alcohol is the oil in the motors that keeps them purring when they could be making other kinds of noise.

In the book, Coulter reveals a portrait of a life in transition. Kristi will be part of the Volume Reading Series at Spotty Dog Books and Ale on September 8 at 7 p.m.
