@ Busboys and Poets Brookland: Elizabeth Benedict, Deborah Tannen, and Marita Golden - Me, My Hair, and I: Twenty-Seven Women Untangle an Obsession

Tuesday, October 13, 2015 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Benedict, a novelist who was a National Book Award finalist with Slow Dancing, has in recent years become a skilled editor of thematic anthologies, drawing out writers on their relationships with their mothers in What My Mother Gave Me, and on influential people in their lives for Mentors, Muses & Monsters. Now she asks some two dozen women writers for their thoughts on hair. The result is a wide-ranging, surprising collection of reflections, regrets, and sundry other sentiments. Join Elizabeth Benedict and contributors Deborah Tannen, Georgetown linguistics professor and author of books including You Just Don’t Understand, and Marita Golden, a long-time teacher and author of fourteen books of fiction and nonfiction, for a discussion of cuts, salons, dyes, and much more.
