Jan 1 on FM: New Year’s best of/wisdom – bell hooks & Adrienne Rich

Hosted by Lynn Harris Ballen, Ariana Manov and Celina Alvarez : The New Year’s day edition of our show features two ‘best of the year’ interviews! Bringing you some very wise words to start off  your year …. Interviews with and about two of the most inspiring and brilliant feminist writers.

First … the incomparable bell hooks answers the question ‘Is Feminism Still for Everybody?’ The visionary feminist theorist and cultural critic, joyously re-defines the “F” word and interweaves the passionate politics of race, gender, class and culture.

Then, a special tribute to groundbreaking poet Adrienne Rich who passed away in the in 2012. We’re bringing you historic audio of an interview with her from the Pacifica Radio Archives and rare clips of Adrienne reading her work.   Plus, local poet & L.A.’s new Poet Laureate, Eloise Klein Healy (who did that historic interview with Adrienne back in 1983) joins us for a look back at Adrienne’s work, and her importance as a feminist writer and truth-teller.

THIS is what feminism sounds like!
