Virtual Event with Emily Rapp Black and Alex Espinoza
Zoom event with Emily Rapp Black and Alex Espinoza is coming up. Date will be announced shortly. Check back here for tickets. Emily is an award-winning author of Poster Child: A Memoir and The Still Point of the Turning World, a New York Times bestseller. She explores art and disability in her most recent book Frida Kahlo and My Left Leg. With elegance, tenderness, and zero sentimentality, she deconstructs the mythologies of words like bravery and resilience and recognizes in Kahlo a twin at the art of creating to silence pain. Joining her is colleague Alex Espinoza, Tomás Rivera Endowed Chair of Creative Writing at UC Riverside and author of novels Still Water Saints and The Five Acts of Diego Léon, and the recent nonfiction book Cruising: An Intimate History of a Radical Pastime.
