NYWW @ Red Room: Resistance and Hope

  • KGB Bar 85 East 4th Street New York, NY, 10003 United States (map)

New York Writers Workshop rings in the New Year with Hedgebrook authors speaking about resistance and hope. Where are women now in the post me-too movement and a successful outcome in the 2018 midterm elections? Authors Perri Klass, Marie Myung-Ok Lee, Keli Stewart, and Anne Whiteside read work about what resistance means to them—where we are and where we’re headed.

  • Marie Myung-Ok Lee is the author of Somebody’s Daughter. Her next novel, The Evening Hero is forthcoming with Simon & Schuster. 

  • Perri Klass, MD, writes the weekly column, “The Checkup,” for the New York Times Science Section.

  • Keli Stewart’s work has appeared in numerous literary journals and was selected for first place in the Gwendolyn Brooks Poetry Award.

  • Anne Whiteside Taught at UC Berkeley. She is now writing about her uncle who was a poet and key figure in the French Resistance.
