Join us to discuss Audre Lorde‘s autobiography/biomythography, ZAMI : A NEW SPELLING OF MY NAME (Freedom, CA: The Crossing Press, 1982). In the words of the feminist publication off our backs’ review (quoted on the cover of the book), “ZAMI is a fast-moving chronicle. From the author’s vivid childhood memories in Harlem to her coming of age in the late 50′s, the nature of Audre Lorde’s work is cyclical. It especially relates the linkage of women who have shaped her. … Lorde brings into play her craft of lush description and characterization. It keeps unfolding page after page.”

 

Please support the Bureau and purchase your copy of ZAMI: A NEW SPELLING OF MY NAME at the Bureau! Thanks!
