THE THEME OF THE NIGHT IS “FLESH AND BONE: STORIES ABOUT THE FEMALE BODY’”

TICKETS ON SALE NOW

This month, we asked our performers to turn their gaze to the site of so much female joy and anxiety: our bodies. The ever-changing relationship we have to the vessels we move through life in is fraught and fascinating, funny and fearless. The messages we get from society, the media, even our own friends and family can be mixed and honestly, a mind f*ck. We invited our courageous storytellers to tell us a story about their body— their challenges or their truimphs. The way it’s bought them pain, or the pitter-patter of tiny feet, or better yet pleasure. Whatever it is, you expect our usual high quality stories, enjoyed in community in New York City.

Hosted by Georgia Clark, author of The Regulars and The Bucket List. 

Generation Women is a cross-generational storytelling night in New York City. Each month, five women of note read an original piece on a theme. Of those women, one is in her 20s, her 30s, her 40s, her 50s, her 60s, and her 70s+. Generation Women celebrates and amplifies women’s voices and creativity. Our diverse line-ups will make you laugh, cry, and think. We’re a unique, intimate female literary salon that brings together women of all ages.
