Judy Grahn is an internationally known poet, writer, and social theorist. Her work underpins several movements, including Gay, Lesbian, and Queer; Feminist/Woman-Centered; and Women’s Spirituality, but it has spread far beyond any of these. Her books include her recent award-winning memoir A Simple Revolution (order your copy here!); The Judy Grahn Reader; Love Belongs To Those Who Do the Feeling; Really Reading Gertrude Stein; The Work of a Common Woman and many others. She currently serves as Associate Core Faculty at Sofia University in Palo Alto, California in the Women’s Spirituality Master’s Program.
Susan Griffin, named by Utne Reader as one of a hundred important visionaries for the new millennium, is a poet, essayist, playwright and screenwriter. Author of Woman and Nature; A Chorus of Stones—the Private Life of War; Wrestling with the Angel of Democracy—the Autobiography of an American Citizen and co-editor of Transforming Terror—Remembering the Soul of the World, Griffin draws connections between the destruction of nature, racism, the diminishment of women, and traces the cause of war to denial in both private and public life. She lectures widely and abroad.
This event is free and open to the public.
