Book Launch: Darcey Steinke presents Flash Count Diary
In conversation with Elissa Schappell
Reception to follow

Greenlight is delighted to celebrate the launch of a bold new nonfiction work by neighbor and friend Darcey Steinke! In Flash Count Diary, Steinke seeks to change the conversation around menopause; as she writes, “it is not menopause itself that is the problem but menopause as it’s experienced under the patriarchy.” Hailed as a “fearless and fiercely intelligent book” by Samantha Hunt, Flash Count Diary breaks down gender norms and expectations, arguing that women are of value beyond their use as mothers and objects of sexual desire. Joining Steinke in conversation is co-founder and editor-at-large of Tin House magazine, Elissa Schappell. A wine reception follows to celebrate the book’s launch.
