Reading: "Spit, Passion, and Ana Mendieta: A Night of Feminism and Graphic Books"
With Christine Redfern, Caro Caron, and Cristy Road
Christine Redfern and Caro Caron's "Who Is Ana Mendieta?" is an iconoclastic cultural graphic biography of the Cuban American feminist artist who “went out the window” during an era on the cusp of rebellion and regression. Fierce Cuban-American-punk illustrator and writer Cristy Road reads from her forthcoming work "Spit and Passion." Together, they bring you a night of Graphic Feminism and badassery. You've been warned.

Feminist Book Club: "Meat Market: Female Flesh Under Capitalism”
The Feminist Book Club reads and discusses feminism. We make no claims to any particular feminist platform. Rather, we rely on feminism(s). We read theoretical texts, literature and primary works. All are welcome regardless of gender, political persuasion, and familiarity. We meet on the first Sunday each month. This month’s book (available at Bluestockings) is “Meat Market: Female Flesh Under Capitalism" by Laurie Penny.
