Intimate Terrorism

Panel Discussion
10 May 2019
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
45 Bleecker St.
New York, NY 10012

All too often, domestic and sexual violence remain hidden from sight, but more writers are using fiction, poetry, and journalism to bring it into the open. Hear Iceland’s Gerður Kristný, Canada’s Miriam Toews, Japan’s Shiori Ito, and Rachel Louise Snyder of the United States talk about what prompted them to tell these confronting stories, and how this often private terror can more easily be tackled once a light is shone on it. They talk to Australian feminist journalist and author Anne Summers.

Presented with production support from the Poetry Foundation.
