Rebecca Solnit

Author and activist Rebecca Solnit will discuss her collection of essays titled, The Mother of All Questions, on Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. in Gasson Hall, room 100. Solnit is the author of 20 books on feminism, western and indigenous history, popular power, social change and insurrection, wandering and walking, and hope and disaster. Some of her titles include: The Faraway Nearby (nominated for a National Book Award), River of Shadows (National Book Critics Circle Award), and Men Explain Things to Me—which inspired the word ‘mansplaining.’ Her most recent publication is Call Them by Their True Names: American Crises. She has received two NEA fellowships for literature and a Guggenheim Fellowship. She is a columnist at Harper’s and frequent contributor to the Guardian newspaper. Read more about Solnit in the New York Times Style Magazine. Sponsor: Lowell Humanities Series.
