Rebellious Mourning

Friday, November 3 at 7 PM

Local authors Lee Sandusky, Wren Awry, and Antigone's own Harmony Hazard will share excerpts from their work published in Rebellious Mourning: The Collective Work of Grief (AK Press, $19.95) and lead a discussion about the public reclamation of grief.

Recently featured in Bitch magazine’s must-read September book review, Rebellious Mourning addresses tragedies from Fukushima to Palestine, incarceration to eviction, AIDS crises to border crossings, and racism to rape. The intimate yet tenacious writing in this volume shows that mourning can pry open spaces of empathy and solidarity.

With contributors like Claudia Rankine, Sarah Schulman, and editor Cindy Milstein, Rebellious Mourning attests that we can bear almost anything when it is worked through collectively. When we publicly share loss and pain, we lessen the power of the forces that debilitate us, while at the same time building the humane social practices that alleviate suffering and improve the quality of life for everyone.
