Booksmith Resists: A Radical Hope Party
June 19, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Feeling a little (or a lot) tired sixth months into this administration? Local and International Treasure Carolina De Robertis is here to help you stay fueled for the long haul with a new collection of letters called Radical Hope: Letters of Love and Dissent in Dangerous Times. Carolina will be joined by Jeff Chang, Aya De León,Cristina García, Kate Schatz, and Jane Smiley to discuss how on earth we’ll keep resisting amid the daily chaos.
Radical Hope 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, Radical Hope 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. It serves as a kind of literary sustenance in dangerous times, and together we’ll reflect on how to resist, who we are, the power and beauty of pluralism, and how to hold on to our vision for a better world.
RSVP greatly appreciated so we know how much stuff to get.
