In Western Massachusetts on Saturday, April 11th? I'll be at the Pioneer Valley ZineFest tabling copies of Tenacious: Art & Writings by Women in Prison as well as copies of the ABC No Rio history zines I co-wrote back in the 1990s and early 2000s. I'll have brand-new, hot-off-the-press copies of the Spring/Mother's Day 2015 issue of Tenacious for sale.
Once again, I’ll be tabling at the Feminist Zine Fest. You can pick up a copy of the latest issues of the zine Tenacious: Art & Writings by Women in Prison as well as copies of my books.

The event is free and open to the public.
The worlds we create in books, whether historical, contemporary or fantasy, inform our notions of ourselves and our possibilities. Yet fewer than 10% of the books published for children and young adults in recent years featured main characters of color. Fewer still were written by authors of color.
Join us for a panel discussion about race in children’s and young adult books. How are characters of color written about in children’s fiction today? Which books represent communities of color accurately, and which do not?
Why Are Women In Prison?: The Politics of Risk
Saturday, May 31, 12 to 2 pm, Room 1.76
In discussions about prison reform and decarceration, how does the concept of "risk" influence who goes to prison and for how long?
What's gender got to do with policing and prison? Did you know that the number of women in prison is increasing at nearly double the rate for men? What does this mean?
