About our November Guest


Kimi Eisele is a multi-disciplinary artist living in Tucson, Arizona. She creates and produces stories, visual works, gatherings, and performances as a way to help us feel kinship with other people, plants, animals, and places.

Her novel, THE LIGHTEST OBJECT IN THE UNIVERSE, about loss and adaptation in a post-apocalyptic America, was published by Algonquin Press in July 2019. Her essays and articles about globalization, US-Mexico border issues, the environment, health and the arts have been published in literary magazines, anthologies, and online news outlets.


About The Salon


The Tucson Writers Salon is an informal series of free mini-workshops with host Tiffany Hawk and acclaimed guest authors. We’ll talk craft, publishing, and the writing life before giving you a fun writing assignment of your own. Arrive with a pen and paper and leave with inspiration and a new community.

About Your Host


Hi, I’m Tiffany, a writing coach and developmental editor. I have an MFA from UC Riverside and am the author of the novel Love Me Anyway. My essays and stories have appeared in such places as The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, National Geographic Traveler, StoryQuarterly, and NPR’s “All Things Considered.” I live in Tucson with my husband and our two kids.


About the Location

Antigone Books

411 N. 4th Ave, Tucson, AZ

Antigone is one of my all-time favorite bookstores. First, it’s entirely run on solar power. How cool is that? But more importantly, this store is so well-curated that it’s the most dangerous place in town. It’s hard not to go in for a specific novel and walk out with armfuls of books I didn’t know existed.
