THURSDAY FEBRUARY 21 SPECIAL EVENT

The Bay Area Book Festival Presents
An Evening with Gloria Steinem: More Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions
In conversation with Favianna Rodriguez, moderated by Lauren Schiller 7:00

What is Gloria Steinem thinking about today in our era of #MeToo and intersectionality? How can today’s feminists learn from our foremothers, and vice versa? We’ll celebrate an updated, third edition of Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions, originally published in 1983 — a book that has sold over half a million copies, and counting. As author Susan Faludi (Backlash) put it, Outrageous Acts “will always be… a required feminist reader.” From satires to moving tributes, confessions (yes, the Playboy bunny essay is in here) and analyses, the book includes classics along with new material. Steinem will talk with artist and activist Favianna Rodriguez of CultureStrike, and Lauren Schiller, host of Inflection Point, from KALW will moderate the conversation. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from an ever-relevant icon in a smart, sassy conversation that will provoke and inspire you.

General Admission $20; Students $15 WomenLit.org
