She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Rose McAleese to read from her Strong.Female.Character (Thursday, Nov. 1st)

Start November out right with a night of Cheap Wine and Poetry!  Head on over to Richard Hugo House where Seattle poet Rose McAleese will read from her debut collection, Strong. Female. Character. (Litsam). As a poet in performance over the past five years and more, Rose McAleese has garnered many awards and won numerous Poetry Slam competitions. Strong. Female. Character. shows that her work is strong on the page, as well. “I’m on a NASA shuttle falling back toward Earth and a woman astronaut, dressed in a space suit made of brass, is getting it all off her chest before splashdown, everything she’s thought or dreamed, tumbling out of her in a heady, hypnotic stream. That’s how I feel reading Rose McAleese’s book full of odes, letters, rants and rites. It’s a thrilling ride.” – Karen Finneyfrock. “These poems harken back to ancient traditions, to a time (pre-Gutenberg) when spoken poetry would regularly illuminate large audiences, as well as the poet herself.” – Tom Robbins.
Where: Richard Hugo House, 1634 11th Avenue

When: 7pm

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
