Rising from the Ashes: Women Writers as the Phoenix

Saturday, Apr 20, 9:00am
RM 270, Healing Center

In Egyptian mythology, the Phoenix is a sacred firebird that has the power to regenerate when injured. She is not invulnerable, but she is invincible. She has the power to lose everything, experience a mortal wound, and rise again. When she is ready to die, she builds a nest of cinnamon, lights it on fire, and burns herself to death. From the ashes, a new Phoenix rises unharmed, healed, reborn. The writers on this panel will present works that engage with current and/or historical social crises, exploring the personal as a site of activism.
