You’re invited to join us for an afternoon launch party and reading of Feminisms in Motion: Voices for Justice, Liberation and Transformation. This anthology is a culmination of 10 years of publishing of the feminist magazine make/shift, which Daria, Jess and I started a decade ago. I’ll be reading my essay from the book and there will plenty of food and hugs for all. You can buy a copy of the book online for a discounted price now. See you there!
Make/shift creates and documents contemporary feminist culture and action by publishing journalism, critical analysis, and visual and text art. I had the great pleasure of founding the magazine along with its two co-editors and co-publishers back in 2006. Here’s to celebrating its 18th issue!
Come on out next week for a night of Middle Eastern storytelling! I’ll be reading a new essay about my last name and how it relates to being Arab American and mixed. Plus, we’re going to dance the dubke! Details below: (more…)
*** UPDATE as of September 26th: Unfortunately, I won’t be able to participate this time around given a scheduling conflict. Stay tuned as I hope to participate in the future!
I’ve been chosen to be part of the cast of Expressing Motherhood! I’m going to read a piece from my memoir-in-progress about choosing to be childfree. The show is one night only–on Saturday, November 7th at 7:30PM at Spirit Studio in Silverlake. Tickets are on sale now and since it’s in a small setting it’s going to sell out fast…buy your tickets now by clicking here! They’re $25 each, but the show should be well worth the splurge!
