Radical Hope: Letters of Love and Dissent in Dangerous Times
Join us for an evening with Carolina de Robertis (Gods of Tango) and several other contributors as we celebrate Radical Hope, a post-election antidote to despair -- a salve, a balm, a compass, a rallying cry, a lyrical manifesto, a power source, a torch to light the way forward.
It is a collection of letters--to ancestors, to children five generations from now, to strangers in grocery lines, to any and all who feel weary and discouraged--written by award-winning novelists, poets, political thinkers, and activists. Provocative and inspiring, it offers readers a kaleidoscopic view of the love and courage needed to navigate this time of upheaval, uncertainty, and fear, in view of the recent US presidential election.
Kate Schatz, Aya de León, Reyna Grande, Jewelle Gomez,Faith Adiele and Carolina de Robertis will be here.
Carolina De Robertis is the author of Perla, The Invisible Mountain, and The Gods of Tango. She is the recipient of Italy's Rhegium Julii Prize and a 2012 fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts.
