Caxton Club Presents: Dao Strom

Wednesday, February 10th

7pm

The Box


Dao Strom is a writer and musician based in Portland, OR. Her work explores hybridity through melding disparate “voices”—written, sung, visual—to contemplate the intersection of personal and collective histories. She is the author of two fiction books, Grass Roof, Tin Roof and The Gentle Order of Girls and Boys, praised by The New Yorker as being “quietly beautiful […] hip without being ironic.” Her latest project is an experimental memoir, We Were Meant To Be A Gentle People, accompanied by a music album, East/West, in which, according to the LA Review of Books, “Strom embraces the fragment as the smallest reliable unit of truth.” Strom has received support from the Regional Arts Culture & Council, Oregon Arts Commission, National Endowment for the Arts, James Michener Fellowship, and the Nelson Algren Award. She was born in Vietnam and grew up in the Sierra Nevada foothills of northern California. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
