"Reading Women: Rebecca Solnit in Conversation with Carrie Schneider" takes place at 3 pm Sunday, Jan 17, 2016, at the Museum of Fine Arts, 255 Beach Dr NE, Saint Petersburg. Admission is free with museum admission.
The event brings together two incredible thinkers who will discuss the power of reading, writing and art.
From their press release:
Deeply inspired by art historian Linda Nochlin’s influential 1971 essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?,” Schneider’s Reading Women series addresses the paucity of women in the literary canon. She photographed and filmed one hundred friends and colleagues in their homes–as they read books of their choice by female authors.
Writer, historian, and activist Rebecca Solnit is the author of 17 books about environment, landscape, community, art, politics, hope, and feminism, including Men Explain Things to Me; A Field Guide to Getting Lost; Wanderlust: A History of Walking; and River of Shadows, Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West (for which she received a Guggenheim, the National Book Critics Circle Award in criticism, and the Lannan Literary Award).
