BETTER BOMBSHELL Group Reading
The Better Bombshell (Awesome Project/Wolfram) paired some of the best writers and artists of our era to redefine the female role model. Who is the better bombshell? Twenty teams (each consisting of a writer and a visual artist, both male and female) address the lack of positive, multidimensional female role models in today's media and project contributors include Dave Barry, Rick Bass, Heather Lende, Roxane Gay, Carolyn Turgeon, Heather Fowler, and Craig Childs. Editorial director Charlotte Austin and contributors including Carolyn Turgeon, Allison Williams, Nicholas Dighera and others to be announced will read and share their artwork tonight. "The Better Bombshell is an electronic, artistic, and cultural cornerstone for one of the most important dialogues of our time: Why are we careless with, dismissive, or unseeing of the feminine?" - Rick Bass, Author and Activist.
