Rebecca Solnit

City Arts & Lectures

Rebecca Solnit in conversation with Astra Taylor. Rebecca Solnit is an incisive voice on topics ranging from feminism to the environment, western and indigenous history to literary criticism, and from hope and disaster to popular power and social change. Her most recent work, Call Them By Their True Names: American Crises (and Essays), brings a measure of light and hope to the sobering topics of police brutality, lack of gun regulation, and other acts of violence in America.

This is what SF/Arts curator Evan Karp had to say about Rebecca Solnit :

Harper’s columnist Rebecca Solnit returns to City Arts for her new book “Call Them by Their True Names: American Crises (And Essays).” Author of many books, including “The Mother of All Questions,” “Men Explain Things to Me,” “Hope in the Dark” and “Infinite City: A San Francisco Atlas,” Solnit is in conversation with Astra Taylor (“Democracy May Not Exist, But We’ll Miss It When It’s Gone”).
