Please join us in welcoming Sonora Jha in Conversation with Lisa Olstein... on Zoom

 Zoom link below....

From teaching consent to counteracting problematic messages from the media, well-meaning family, and the culture at large, we have big work to do when it comes to our boys. Through a series of courageous and moving essays, author Sonora Jha tells the story of raising her son across two patriarchal cultures and reveals what is at stake for all boys in today's world in her timely new book, How to Raise a Feminist Son—part memoir, part parenting manual. A beautifully written and deeply personal story of raising a feminist son, this empowering book offers much-needed insight and actionable advice. Join Jha as she reads from and discusses her book with award-winning poet Lisa Olstein. 

Sonora Jha, PhD, is an essayist, novelist, researcher, and a professor of journalism at Seattle University. She is the author of the novel Foreign, and her op-eds and essays have appeared in the New York Times, the Seattle Times, The Establishment, DAME, and in several anthologies. She grew up in Mumbai and has been Chief of Metropolitan Bureau for the Times of India and contributing editor for East magazine in Singapore. 

Lisa Olstein is the author of Pain Studies—a book-length lyric essay exploring the intersection of pain, perception, language, and gender—and four poetry collections published by Copper Canyon Press, most recently, Late Empire. A member of the poetry faculty at the University of Texas at Austin, she currently teaches in the New Writers Project and Michener Center for Writers MFA programs.
