Out of Silence: An Afternoon with Literary Legend Susan Griffin

Susan Griffin in conversation with Cherilyn Parsons

Sunday, January 29 2023

2:30 PM - 5:00 PM

The Pines in Sausalito (33 Miller Ave, Sausalito CA 94965, US)

Susan Griffin has been one of the most influential voices in feminism for more than fifty years. Often credited with launching the ecofeminism movement, she has penned twenty books, including the seminal and gorgeously written Woman and Nature. She pioneered a form of writing that melds essay, memoir, poetry, philosophy, and social critique, exploring additional topics such as war, non-violence, eros, and illness. A Pulitzer finalist, she has taught writing for decades and has now distilled that knowledge in a new book, Out of Silence, Sound. Out of Nothing, Something., a guide to writing and the creative process. Kind, humorous, and generous, she will join us at The Pines mansion in Sausalito for an interview, book signing, and mingling with guests over tea. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet a true icon of literature, feminism, and grace. Free event but registration required. More information in early January.
