This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series.
Furious Gravity is the long-awaited ninth volume of the "Grace and Gravity" series, a literary journal devoted to women writers in the D.C. region. This volume will be the second edited by Melissa Scholes Young, a D.C. writer and associate professor at American University, who has taken over from founder Richard Peabody (Gargoyle and Paycock Press). Scholes Young delivers a gorgeous and vivid volume of fifty vibrant voices. Her vision for the ninth volume is a platform in which women write about the gravitational forces that bind them together or push them apart. Fury is useful fuel as they respond to a world they wish was more just. Amidst the darkness provided in generous and unrelenting doses by the current political climate, this collection delivers a compilation of stories and essays with undeniable pull - and, of course, grace.
Instead of a set ticket price, we ask that you contribute what you can to support Politics and Prose Bookstore and our virtual event series. We know that everyone has been affected in these trying times, and we will continue to make our programming accessible to all. That said, a suggested contribution of $5, $10, whatever you can afford, will go a long way to keep our programming—and our bookstore—afloat as we are forced to adapt to new ways of business.
The other way you can support us is always by purchasing a copy of the book from our website.
We are so grateful to be surrounded by such a loyal and engaged community and we thank you for your support, now and always.
