  • The 15th Annual CityLit Festival will feature the panel Find A Way: #MeToo Movement – A quote adopted from the op-ed piece by Diana Nyad, “My Life After Sexual Assault” and a provocative session in the wake of the #MeToo Movement created by Tarana Burke. “It was a catchphrase to be used from survivor to survivor to let folks know that they were not alone and that a movement for radical healing was happening and possible.” The renewed awareness of relationships of power, in general, exploring the ways in which men and women writers have been confronted with issues of sexism, sexual abuse, race, body image, and disability is more important than ever. This session, curated by novelist Jen Michalski, includes authors Susi Wyss, Kenneth Rogers, Laura Bogart, Allison McCarthy, and Hannah J. Sawyerr.
