Just Buffalo Literary Center exists to share stories, give voice, and build community. The 2020/21 season will focus on writers whose work addresses issues related to the body, health, disability, and healing with different perspectives on that theme (i.e. the Black body; mother's bodies as sites of legal/political activity; the disabled body and discourses around abelism; AIDS and activism; and rhetoric(s) of cancer).
Designed to empower participants to explore literature as a means to translate their own experiences with health & the healthcare system, grief, trauma and victory over circumstance, the season will provide an artistic lens by which audiences may acknowledge and reshape outdated paradigms, nurture empathy, and promote healing and self-agency through creative expression.
All events will be online and FREE. Register through Crowdcast for access.
