What happens when words become weapons? Sonia Sanchez, Ana Castillo, and Angela Davis explore that question, drawing upon their own work as activists and authors, in this provocative literary event.

They will share their personal experiences, read from their works, and take audience questions on the importance of documenting heritage, the power of words and the devastating effects when that power is stripped away.

GIVE IT TO ME by Ana Castillo

More advanced praise:

Cheeky, amoral, and a gritty survivor, Palma Piedras, the main character of Ana Castillo’s GIVE IT TO ME, is a picaresque heroine for the 21st century. The barbed sense of humor on display here is a welcome tonic. GIVE IT TO ME demolishes clichés and tired tropes, as Castillo depicts, with an unflinching satirical touch, a vivid cast of rogues and helpless characters who alarmingly resemble people we know.

–Jaime Manrique, author of Our Lives are the Rivers

Give It To Me: novel by Ana Castillo, The Feminist Press, NY. Release date: May 2014.
