Recollections of My Non-Existence: Rebecca Solnit & Mary Beard

Tickets Available

In partnership with 5x15

Having had to cancel our event last year at the Emmanuel Centre, we are delighted to bring together Rebecca Solnit and Mary Beard in a digital event to celebrate the paperback publication of Recollections of My Non-Existence (Granta). This event is in partnership with 5x15.

Beginning in San Francisco in 1981, the era of punk and nascent gay pride, Rebecca Solnit’s latest book Recollections of My Non-Existence (Granta) is a powerful memoir of growing both as a woman and an artist, drawing on the powers of literature, activism and solidarity in the face of an apparently unbreachable patriarchy. The struggle to find a voice and to find a way to make that voice heard are brilliantly captured and dissected by one of feminism’s, and indeed the world’s, foremost thinkers. Rebecca Solnit will be in conversation about her life and work with historian Mary Beard, whose most recent book is Women & Power: A Manifesto. Both of our speakers are regular contributors to the pages of the LRB.
