July 28, 2011July 28 at 7PM: Christopher R. Howard will be at Boswell Book Co. in Milwaukee, WI to read from Tea Of Ulaanbaatar. Boswell Book Co. is located at 2559 N. Downer Ave., Milwaukee, WI 5321. Tea of Ulaanbaatar is the story of disaffected Peace Corps volunteer Warren, who flees life in late-capitalist America to find himself stationed in the post-Soviet industrial hell of urban Mongolia. As the American presence crumbles, Warren seeks escape in tsus, the mysterious "blood tea" that may be the final revenge of the defeated Khans-or that may be only a powerful hallucinogen operating on an uneasy mind-as a phantasmagoria of violence slowly envelops him.
February 20, 2011February 20, 2011, 7-8PM, Inga Muscio will be speaking at the University of Wisconsin about her latest book, Rose, exploring the impacts of passive violence, abuse, war, and cultural trauma on our most intimate lives. Inga will be discussing passive violence, racism, and feminism. Rose breaks new ground in answering a fundamental question in most feminist and antiracist writing: how do we identify, witness, and then recover from trauma—as individuals, as families, as communities, and as a country? The event is sponsored by the Milwaukee Students for a Democratic Society. Location: UWM Union Ballroom, 2200 E Kenwood Blvd, 1st Level, Milwaukee, WI 53201. This is a free event.
