  • Loyalty Books 827 Upshur Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20011 United States (map)

A reading and discussion with Shelly Oria, Amber Sparks, Stacia Brown, Sigal Samuel, Ailish Hopper, and Yael Shinar.

Among the first books to emerge from the #MeToo movement, Indelible in the Hippocampus is a truly intersectional collection of essays, fiction, and poetry. these original texts sound the voices of black, Latinx, Asian, queer, and trans writers, to name but a few, and says “me too” 22 times. Whether reflecting on their teenage selves or their modern-day workplaces, each contributor approaches the subject with unforgettable authenticity and strength. Together these pieces create a portrait of cultural sea-change, offering the reader a deeper understanding of this complex, galvanizing pivot in contemporary consciousness.
