Sunday, March 4, 2012 - 2:00pm

A Room of One's Own welcomes Renee' D'Aoust for a reading and booksigning of her book Body of a Dancer!

University of Utah Professor of English and author Lance Olsen says the following about Body of A Dancer:

horrifying, unfalteringly honest, Renée E. D'Aoust's "Body of a Dancer"
is a remarkably clear-eyed descent into New York's surreal world
of modern dance peopled by the obsessed,
dispossessed, sexy, suicidal, brutal, broke, and absurd, where piercing
self-doubt and ambition give way to luminous instants of transcendence,
and where the body is a site of pain and beauty and discipline and joy,
a home you can never fully inhabit and never fully leave.”
