A reading group with Pilot Press


Join us on Thursday, May 26th at 7:00 pm for a reading group with Pilot Press (Jen Kennedy and Liz Linden) a D.I.Y. feminist publishing house that provides a non-hierarchical, unedited, and uncensored look at the self-identified feminist community. This reading group will take place along side the current exhibition at Cleopatra’s titled, F is for Fake: The construction of femaleness by the US media, organized by Amanda Parmer. There, exhibition visitors are encouraged to print and bind as many copies of their unpublished feminist works as they like; in exchange for this free publication service, they are required to leave a single bound copy of their publications in the pilot press library. This event will feature readings from the texts submitted during the course of the show at Cleopatra’s.
