In February, Evergreen renews itself with a line-up of new writing and video from the cutting edges of culture, identity, and politics. Inspired in part by Henry David Thoreau's blistering essay "In Defense of John Brown," which is exactly as inflammatory as the title suggests, editor Dale Peck offers us a wide variety of fiction, essays, and video that reject accommodation and passive resistance to right-wing tyranny with impassioned, uncompromising political stances that land on the intersection of individual freedom and collective action.
On the docket for our all-new issue are newcomer Heather Abel, who gives us a peek at her debut novel "The Optimistic Decade," about a utopian Jewish summer camp in the arid Colorado foothills, and acclaimed master Lynne Tillman, whose sixth novel and fifteen book, "Men and Apparitions," about an ethnographer obsessed with masculine and familial modes of communication, may well be her most daring yet.
Join us to celebrate in NYC on Feb. 28 at Poster House, 119 West 23rd, 7:00 PM! Readings, music, prizes and more. RSVP to email@example.com
