NYC Book Launch: Jeannie Vanasco presents Things We Didn’t Talk About When I Was a Girl
In conversation with YZ Chin
Reception to follow
In Things We Didn’t Talk About When I Was a Girl, Jeannie Vanasco (The Glass Eye) examines the language surrounding sexual assault and pushes against its confines, contributing to and deepening the #MeToo discussion. Exacting and courageous, Things We Didn't Talk About When I Was a Girl is part memoir, part true crime record, and part testament to the strength of female friendships—a recounting and reckoning that will inspire us to ask harder questions and interrogate our biases. Vanasco examines and dismantles long-held myths of victimhood, discovering grace and power in this genre-bending investigation into the trauma of sexual violence. Joining Vanasco in conversation is YZ Chin, author of Though I Get Home.
