Emma Bolden presents The Tiger and the Cage: A Memoir of a Body in Crisis 
In conversation with Angela Chen 

Greenlight welcomes poet and author Emma Bolden for a virtual evening celebrating her new book, The Tiger and the Cage. This exquisitely wrought debut memoir recounts Bolden's lifelong struggle with chronic pain and endometriosis, while speaking more broadly to anyone who has been told “it’s all in your head.” Bolden uses her own experience as the starting point for a journey through the institutional misogyny of Western medicine—from a history of labeling women “hysterical” and parading them as curiosities to a lack of information on causes or cures for endometriosis despite more than a century of documented cases. Recounting botched surgeries and dire side effects from pharmaceuticals affecting her and countless others, Bolden speaks to the ways people are often failed by the official narratives of institutions meant to protect them. Bolden is joined by acclaimed author of Ace Angela Chen for an incisive evening of reading and conversation.
