Event Description

Vignettes that build in intensity into something impossible to ignore.

Recounting experiences of discrimination, harassment, and assault from childhood to the present, Chavisa Woods provides personal evidence that sexual violence and discrimination are not just one-time occurrences, but part of the structure of women's lives.

Brooklyn-based Woods is the author of the short story collection Things to Do When You’re Goth in the Country and the novel The Albino Album. She was the recipient of the Cobalt Prize for fiction and was a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award for fiction. In 2018 Woods was the recipient of the Kathy Acker Award for Writing and the Shirley Jackson Award for Best Novelette. 

Mid-Sentence presents a series of conversations with groundbreaking literary voices. Indie authors and cult favorites explore the intersections between literature and lived experience.

ASL interpretation and real-time (CART) captioning available upon request. Please submit your request at least two weeks in advance by emailing accessibility@nypl.org.
