The Conversation — an activist-minded literary series at Women & Children First Bookstore — continues this Thursday, February 22 from 7:30 to 9 p.m.
According to the organizers: “Kiki Petrosino, Sarah Manguso, Gina Frangello, and Kim Brooks will be hosting ‘The Conversation: The Body,’ at Women & Children First Bookstore; we’ll continue the conversation afterwards around the corner at Las Manos Gallery. Can’t wait to see you, think with you, talk with you, and drink with you!”
The Conversation is a free, no-ticket event, open to all, but donations will be collected at the afterparty to fund a local nonprofit. Click here for more event details.
