Rebecca Solnit - Recollections of My Non-Existence (SOLD OUT)
Rebecca Solnit is one of the finest of writers and commentators working today and an extraordinary activist, having worked on environmental and human rights campaigns since the 1980s. Her books range from studies of the west, the history of photography, and the wonder of walking, to the remarkable A Paradise Built in Hell: The Extraordinary Communities that Arise in Disaster and Men Explain Things to Me: And Other Essays, which inspired the term ‘mansplaining’ (and more). Her latest book, Recollections of My Non-Existence, set in the era of punk, of growing gay pride, of counter culture and West Coast activism, looks at violence against women, second-wave feminism, and the liberation offered by the place, her activism, and the magical world of literature and books. In this special event, Solnit talks about her life, work and her activism; reflects on where we are now from the environment to feminism; and examines how we can work together and be active for a better future.
Rebecca Solnit is the author of, among other books, Men Explain Things to Me, The Mother of All Questions, Call Them by their True Names, Wanderlust, A Field Guide to Getting Lost, the National Books Critics Circle award-winning River of Shadows, and A Paradise Built in Hell. A contributing editor to Harper’s she writes regularly for the Guardian, the London Review of Books and the Los Angeles Times.
