Reading with Amber Tamblyn

7:00 PM19:00

Reading with Amber Tamblyn

DjheomoW0AAXtyp.jpg

I'm reading with Amber Tamblyn, on her book tour stop at The Creative Alliance, hosted by the Ivy Bookshop!

WED AUG 1 | 7PM | FREE

Creative Alliance

3134 Eastern Ave, Balto, Maryland 21224

Lidia Yuknavitch. Roxane Gay. Carmen Maria Machado. Amelia Gray. Han Kang. By turning women’s bodies into a place of resistance, these pioneering feminist authors are rewriting how we understand trauma. Their influence can be found in Amber Tamblyn’s searing debut novel, ANY MAN– a groundbreaking work that challenges our understanding of rape culture and the experience of trauma, while also searching for hope – and a space for victims to be heard – in the darkest of places.

After writing a widely shared and lauded opinion piece for The New York Times, “I’m Done with Not Being Believed,” Amber Tamblyn has emerged as an important voice, writing about sexual assault and abuses of power. Now, the Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated actress, director, and poet uses the novel form to explore a provocative and haunting story of a violent serial predator who, in the form of a woman, is the personification of a culture responsible for re-traumatizing, disbelieving, and silencing the stories and voices of her victims.

Playread With Me: Hir by Taylor Mac

Playread With Me: Hir by Taylor Mac

I'll be moderating the discussion after the Playread With Me reading of Taylor Mac's Hir!


Join us for the second Playread With Me event of 2018! We'll gather at the Windup Space to read Taylor Mac's Hir and then launch into a moderated discussion!

If you'd like to read, come by around 6:00PM to get a part. The reading will begin at 6:30PM (those who don't want to read are welcome to listen!).

FREE EVENT (you purchase your own drinks and can throw in $5 for Joe's Squared pizza if you want food!) 

The Play:
Somewhere in the suburbs, Isaac has returned from the wars to help take care of his ailing father, only to discover a household in revolt. The insurgent: his mom. Liberated from an oppressive marriage, with Isaac’s newly out transgender sibling as her ally, she’s on a crusade to dismantle the patriarchy. But in Taylor Mac’s sly, subversive comedy, annihilating the past doesn’t always free you from it.

Check out images and info from the 2015 world premiere of Hir at Playwright's Horizons: https://www.playwrightshorizons.org/shows/plays/hir/

More about Playread With Me:
This playreading meets bookclub invites you to grab a drink, take on a role in the play, and join actors around the table to read a script dealing with identity in America. Then we'll talk about the themes and their relevance to you and Baltimore.
