i'm rather excited. i only just got my copy of girls to the front on monday so i haven't read it yet but what i have read so far is pretty acetastic and i think i might actually keep a highlighter (or possibly a crayon) on me while reading it because it seems to be full of good quotes / stuff to remember.
Sara will be talking about her well renowned book 'Girls to the Front' and the Riot Grrrl movement, which will be followed by rousing discussion.
Merchandise will be available to purchase, and be sure to bring along your copy of GttF because Sara will be doing book signings in the last hour. Merch stall by The Feminist Library and zine distro by Vampire Sushi.
"Sara Marcus’s Girls to the Front is not only a historical rockument of the revolutionary 90s counterculture Riot Grrrl movement, which birthed the DIY feminist punk scene, but also a rousing inspiration for a new generation of empowered rebel girls to strap on guitars and stick it to The Man." - Vanity Fair
