The Nebraska Girl Lit Hour with guest Crystal Salas
Join Melissa F. Alvarado as she talks to Crystal Salas bout her book The Body Memoir

Crystal Salas is a sentimental little bird with many south places to fly for winter. She collects this sentimentality in poetry and thinks it a comforting way of becoming a functional adult. She can be found at perfectly cool parties forcing guests to contribute to drunken exquisite corpse poems, posting Frank O’Hara fortune cookie lines in the dark of night in small coastal surf-towns (ninja style with like-minded ninja friends), and consulting cats about meter. She guesses she is really about 60 years old inside. She recently graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a degree in Creative Writing, would like a job, and knows you think that is funny. When she is not flying solo, she is performing with the Razor Babes Art Collective. She just completed her first chapbook entitled The Body Memoir and she sewed it together herself.
