Join us for a virtual program to celebrate the publication of Inviting Interruptions: Wonder Tales in the Twenty-First Century edited by Cristina Bacchilega and Jennifer Orme. This anthology assembles contemporary stories, comics, and visual texts that put pressure on the fairy-tale genre from intersectional perspectives that are not accounted for in its mainstream iterations. The collection features how, by challenging popular perceptions of the genre, artists and storytellers make non-normative perspectives and experiences visible and reanimate the fairy tale for contemporary audiences.
Join Cristina & Jennifer and contributors such as Su Blackwell, David Kaplan, Joellyn Rock, Sofia Samatar, Veronica Schanoes, Danielle Wood for a preview of their tales of wonder and a lively Q&A discussion.
The discussion will be introduced by Marie Sweetman, Acquisition Editor at Wayne State University Press.
