…how could you not like The Feminist Press?
In case you’re looking for something awesome to do in New York tonight, you might consider heading on out to Joe’s Pub (part of the Public Theatre) tonight from 6-8pm to celebrate the FP’s 40th Anniversary.
Advance tickets are sold out, but tickets are available at the door ($40, $25 for students).
You might also be interested in the Rainbow Book Fair on March 27, which is totally free, and huge, and which will feature FP books among many others. More info here.
Whether or not you can make it, you should totally check out the Feminist Press’s website, for a whole bunch of great books (old and new) they’ve published, but also for feminist/womanist/queer titles from other publishers. They’re also responsible for WSQ (formerly Women’s Studies Quarterly), a now bi-annual academic journal, which includes scholarship, but also poetry and fiction and memoir and other stuff.
Hmmm, with all the writers among us, perhaps we should try to pull off an all-Harpy issue? What would you submit?
