A Virtual Evening with Julie Marie Wade and Julia Koets
Event Date: September 20, 2020 4:00 pm
In “Just an Ordinary Woman Breathing”, Wade traces the intimate story of coming of age in one particular body (as a lesbian, an only child, a Protestant attending Catholic school). She uses the language and tenets of music, math, religion, fairy tales, poetry, and art to reckon with the many facets of embodiment, sexuality, and love in our contemporary world. The diet industry, popular culture, and her own family all provide rich material for what is ultimately a lyrical and unflinching investigation into the questions that prickle deep within the human heart. Julie Marie Wade and Julia Koets were in conversation September 20, 2020 presented by Books & Books in partnership with Miami Book Fair.
