PEN World Voices Festival presents
An Evening with Guernica: Bravery & Gender in "Confessional Writing"
with Ben Anastas, Trisha Low, Anthony Swofford and Agata Tuszynska
Wednesday, May 1, 2013 at 7:00PM

at Center for Jewish History
15 West 16th Street
New York, NY 10014


Why are confessional narratives penned by female writers so often deemed “brave,” “sticky,” or “opportunistic,” when the same material addressed by male writers is called by its name: art? Join Guernica magazine to confess, grieve, or take jabs at the glaring double-standard in how personal writing is consumed, marketed, and reviewed today. Moderated by Guernica's Daily Editor, Rachel Riederer, our participants are bound to breathe in deep, let things off their chests, and pray for rain.
