Jessa Crispin - The Creative Tarot: A Modern Guide to an Inspired Life & The Dead Ladies Project: Exiles, Expats, and Ex-Countries

Saturday, February 27, 2016 at 6:00 pm

Crispin’s first book, The Dead Ladies Project, is a spirited memoir/travelogue/literary essay that defies the depression that sparked it. The creator of the literary blog, Bookslut, Crispin grew disenchanted with her life in Chicago and headed to Europe. Traveling in the footsteps of her artistic heroines (and a few heroes, like William James, Stravinsky, and Maugham), Crispin visited the places where strong, independent women like Rebecca West, Maude Gonne, and Margaret Anderson lived and worked, responding to their achievements with a tart and often skeptical wit. In her second book, The Creative Tarot, Crispin demystifies the esoteric with readings that focus on the practical aspects of the venerable mystic practice. Her five original spreads and stories of artistic inspiration suggest ways that a change of perspective can spark new creativity.

Crispin will be in conversation with Tayla Burney, a producer with The Kojo Nnamdi Show.
