LIVE ON ZOOM: RACHEL KAUDER NALEBUFF and AGNES BORINSKY host a reading and writing workshop - a benefit

Seeing Care, a Reading & Writing Workshop

*Please note: this event will take place live on Zoom. RSVP here. Suggested donation: $5-$50. Ticket sales benefit Skylight Books, the National Domestic Workers Alliance and the Disability Project at the Transgender Law Center. Sliding scale admission. $5-50

Join Rachel and Agnes as they read from their recent works, Stages (Thick Press, 2020) + "The Seeing Place" (2020), and facilitate several short writing and dialogue-based exercises—designed to clarify the present and usher in subtle change. Can we notice new worlds into the here and now? Can we speak a care-centric world into being, by shifting the gaze, by shifting language?

Rachel Kauder Nalebuff is the author of Stages (Thick Press, 2020), a hybrid collection of writing and interviews with end-of-life care workers that “feels truly revolutionary, in both form and in content” (Elif Batuman). She is also the editor of the New York Times best-selling My Little Red Book (Hachette, 2009), an anthology of people’s first period stories; and co-editor of The Feminist Utopia Project (Feminist Press, 2015), a collection of essays and art that imagine feminist futures.

Agnes Borinsky is a writer, based in Los Angeles, and a bookseller at Skylight Books. She has written many plays, including, Brief Chronicle, Books 6-8, available from 3 Hole Press. Her YA novel, Sasha Masha, comes out this fall.
