Writer Melissa Febos’ life and experiences have provided ample inspiration for her creative nonfiction. First there was her 2010 memoir Whip Smart, in which she reflects on her time spent in dual roles — as a college student and a professional dominatrix. Earlier this year, the Brooklyn-based author released Abandon Me, a personal exploration of her familial and romantic relationships, among other things. Now, Burlington Book Festival attendees can hear the woman of words read from her work and talk shop with fellow wordsmith Jessica Hendry Nelson. An audience Q&A and a book signing leave bibliophiles beaming.
