29 March, 7pm, Barbican Library. Book tickets.
Ursula K. Le Guin witnessed the rebellions and upheavals of the twentieth century, including women’s liberation, the civil rights movement and anti-war and environmental activism. Space Crone, edited and introduced by So Mayer and Sarah Shin, brings together Le Guin’s writings on feminism and gender for the first time, including speeches, essays and stories.
To offer new insights into her imaginative, multispecies feminist consciousness – from its roots in her ecological and anti-war concerns, to her self-education about racism and her writing on motherhood and ageing – editor So Mayer will be in conversation with writers Irenosen Okojie and Kate Hardie.
