NYC – Woman Rebel Signing


Cartoonist Peter Bagge and more appear at WORD on Thursday, October 24th, 2013 at 7:00 pm!

Press Release:

Join us for a night of reading and storytelling in honor of activist Margaret Sanger. Featuring a presentation from cartoonist Peter Bagge, author of Woman Rebel: The Margaret Sanger Story, the evening will also include writer Thomas Page McBee, Karolina Waclawiak (How to Get Into the Twin Palms) and pro-voice activist Kassi Underwood.

In his signature cartoony, rubbery style, Bagge presents the life of the birth-control activist, educator, nurse, mother, and protofeminist from her birth in the late nineteenth century to her death after the invention of the birth control pill. He creates a fast-paced portrait of a trailblazer whose legacy as the founder of Planned Parenthood is still incredibly relevant, important, and inspiring.

Thomas Page McBee is a “masculinity expert” for VICE and writes the column “Self-Made Man” for the Rumpus. His essays and reportage have appeared in the New York Times, The Atlantic online, Salon, and Buzzfeed, where he is a regular contributor on gender issues. Man Alive, his manuscript about violence, forgiveness, and what makes a man won the Mary Tanenbaum nonfiction award from the San Francisco Foundation and was a finalist for the 2012 Bakeless literary prize. He is currently an editor at PolicyMic and at work on a book about forgiveness.

Kassi Underwood is an award-winning writer whose work has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic online, The New York Daily News, The Rumpus, The Days of Yore, Publishers Weekly, Exhale’s Pro-Voice blog, and elsewhere. She hosts The Freerange Nonfiction Reading Series at Lolita Bar, and is one of many leaders in the pro-voice movement.

Karolina Waclawiak is the author of How to Get Into the Twin Palms, the essays editor of the Believer, and is working on a second novel and several screenplays, including one in development.
