Join us for a virtual reading by contributors to the new anthology of DC women writers, Furious Gravity! Featuring Stephanie Dulli, Amy Freeman, Wendy Goodman, Monique Hayes, Donna Hemans, Beth Kanter, Maggie Nye, Alice Stephens, and Kathleen Wheaton. Moderated by contributor and TWC board member Vonetta Young.
Furious Gravity is the long-awaited ninth volume of the “Grace and Gravity” series, a literary journal devoted to women writers in the D.C. region. This volume will be the second edited by Melissa Scholes Young, a D.C. writer and associate professor at American University, who has taken over from founder Richard Peabody (Gargoyle and Paycock Press). Scholes Young delivers a gorgeous and vivid volume of fifty vibrant voices. Her vision for the ninth volume is a platform in which women write about the gravitational forces that bind them together or push them apart. Fury is useful fuel as they respond to a world they wish was more just. Amidst the darkness provided in generous and unrelenting doses by the current political climate, this collection delivers a compilation of stories and essays with undeniable pull – and, of course, grace.
FREE and open to the public, all times Eastern. Limited space.
RSVP below, and you’ll receive an email on or before May 3 with instructions for joining the reading via our video conferencing platform, Zoom.
