While editing the stories in Live Through This: On Creativity and Self-Destruction, I noticed a series of themes inherent in the essays. Shame, political consciousness, isolation, power versus control: these are just some of the topics that are inherent in anyone’s self-destructive journey. This reading/multi-media lecture is an incredible introduction to the book and the themes that appear in between the lines of each artists’ story. It consists of short readings, a 45 minute multi-media lecture, and a Q&A that always prompts an interesting dialogue on mental illness, creativity, self-destruction and gender.
On April 15th, Sabrina Chapadijev will be lecturing on Live Through This: On Creativity and Self-Destruction (sponsored by Poets and Writers). The discussion will be at TrumbullPlex (4210 Trumbull) at 8pm, and is FREE to all. You can reply via Facebook here.
You can also watch an interview with the editor on YouTube.
