From the moment they are born, girls internalize popular culture's depiction of who they are versus who they aren't, what they want versus what they shouldn't, and who they can be versus who they can't. What it means to be a "girl" towers over us. It casts a shadow over everything and obscures our sense of reality.
Join Lawndale Artist Studio Program participant Shannon Crider for a Summer Book Club that examines the representation of women in popular culture and how it affects us. A voracious consumer of popular culture, particularly television, Crider is eager to explore this topic through an open discussion with the community. Each month, participants will discuss themes from that month's book, as well as video clips curated by the artist. Light refreshments will be provided.
For this workshop, the following books will be available at Brazos Bookstore on Bissonnet with a 10% Book Club Discount and free through the Houston Public Library.
