Horse Girls: An Evening with Halimah Marcus, C. Morgan Babst and Sarah Enelow-Snyder
Event Date: August 16, 2021 7:00 pm
A compelling and provocative essay collection that smashes stereotypes and redefines the meaning of the term “horse girl,” broadening it for women of all cultural backgrounds. Halimah Marcus, C. Morgan Babst and Sarah Enelow-Snyder in conversation about HORSE GIRLS on August 16, 2021.
Featuring some of the most striking voices in contemporary literature—including Carmen Maria Machado, Pulitzer-prize winner Jane Smiley, T Kira Madden, Maggie Shipstead, and Courtney Maum—HORSE GIRLS reframes the iconic bond between girls and horses with the complexity and nuance it deserves. And it showcases powerful emerging voices like Braudie Blais-Billie, on the connection between her Seminole and Quebecois heritage; Sarah Enelow-Snyder, on growing up as a Black barrel racer in central Texas; and Nur Nasreen Ibrahim, on the colonialist influence on horse culture in Pakistan.
