About this event:
WHAT: A reading and lively conversation with Carmen Maria Machado (award-winning author of Her Body and Other Parties) and Gina Frangello (UIC professor, award-winning author, and former Rumpus editor).
SO WHAT: Machado’s Her Body and Other Parties received acclaim and award nominations before it was even published (and is shortlisted for the National Book Award). Women and Children First is a small-business bookstore and perennial champion of intersectional literature. Bringing the two together is going to be an explosively feminist event that will be the most inspiring thing you’ll ever go to on a Wednesday.
NOW WHAT: The event is free, but you should read Her Body And Other Parties beforehand. (You should read it even if you can’t make it to the reading/conversation.) Read more about the event on the Women and Children First website.
