An Evening With Rebecca Solnit

When: Thursday, June 5th at 7:30PM
Where: Town Hall, 1119 Eighth Avenue
Cost: $5-50, buy tickets here

The author of 13 books, Rebecca Solnit writes on art, landscape, public and collective life, ecology, politics, feminism, hope, meandering, reverie, memory, and the power of story. Her most recent work, The Faraway Nearby, explores the ways we make our lives out of stories, and how we are connected by empathy, by narrative, and by imagination. Her earlier books include River of Shadows: Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West (2004), for which she received a Guggenheim, the National Book Critics Circle Award in criticism, and the Lannan Literary Award. She recently published her book of essays called “Men Explain Things to Me,” in which she muses about mansplaining and its broader cultural implications. Solnit also spoke to Democracy Now about the misogynist UCSB shootings.

Presented by: Seattle Arts & Lectures as part of its Literary/Arts Series.

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.
