Description

Babes in Books is taking over the Round Table with a reading group convened by Catherine Connolly and Stephanie Van Schilt, with a reading by Jessica Knight. The reading group will focus on Nadja Spiegelman's I'm supposed to protect you from all this (2016), a recent memoir about three generations of women. Spiegelman's book, which embraces ideas around matriarchs, intimacy, intergenerational trauma, identity and sexuality, will be the starting point for both personal and political conversations on issues affecting contemporary feminism.

Writer Jessica Knight will give an and introduction to Nadja Spiegelman's book, and perform a reading of a short piece of her own writing to spark conversations.

Babes in Books is a reading group dedicated to celebrating, discussing and critically engaging with the work of contemporary female identifying authors. It aims to increase awareness, conversation and engagement with contemporary feminist literature.
