urvashi’s new book!

June 18th, 2012


Irresistible Revolution: Confronting race, class and the assumptions of LGBT politics is coming out from Magnus Press in July! Here’s the synopsis:

From one of the nation’s best-known social justice leaders and community activists comes a strategic and informed argument about the pitfalls of limited political vision, and the benefits of an agenda that encompasses, yet moves beyond, equality.


Magnus is a small, independent press. Pre-orders help a lot in terms of the number of books each vendor orders from the publisher. Through these links you can order it from Women and Children First,,, or Barnes and Noble.

I just finished my teaching stint at the U of Chicago. Here are some of my wonderful students working on their minicomics at the end of the quarter.


I schlepped myself back home to VT last Saturday, but am out on the road briefly. I did a reading in Portsmouth NH last night, and tonight I will be in Western MA!

If you’re in the environs of South Hadley, come hear me read from my new book Are You My Mother? at The Odyssey Bookshop at 7pm.

And tomorrow, Saturday, 6/16 I will be in BTV! At the Amy Tarrant Gallery at the Flynn, 6pm.

Tuesday the 19th I’ll be at the Galaxy in Hardwick, 7pm.

And Tuesday the 26th all be at Bear Pond! Montpelier! 7pm.
