ROWENA KENNEDY-EPSTEIN on MURIEL RUKEYSER with REBECCA BROWN

07/18/2013 7:00 pm
Poet and political activist Muriel Rukeyser's Savage Coast (Feminist Press), an autobiographical novel about her experiences during the first days of the Spanish Civil War, remained unpublished in her lifetime and hidden away in an unmarked file in the Library of Congress after her death. Published now for the first time by the Feminist Press in an edition edited and introduced by the scholar Rowena Kennedy-Epstein, the novel provides new insights into the Popular Front resistance to the fascist coup, as well as shedding light on the author's political and sexual awakening. A doctoral candidate in English at CUNY with roots in Seattle, Rowena Kennedy-Epstein will discuss this feminist icon and her novel in an onstage conversation with Seattle scholar and writer, Rebecca Brown. "Muriel Rukeyser spoke of Spain as the place where she began to say what she believed ... Spain changed Rukeyser and her protagonist. This novel will change the reader." - Margaret Randall.
