Alicia Roth Weigel’s Inverse Cowgirl

Come hear Alica Roth Weigel and Dr. Karen Tang Discuss Inverse Cowgirl

Alicia Roth Weigel is a writer and activist working to improve the political and
social landscape for marginalized populations in the South and worldwide
through her firm, Intrepida Strategy.

In INVERSE COWGIRL: A Memoir, Alicia boldly
speaks out about working as a change agent in a state that actively attempts to pass legislation that
would erase her existence, explores how we can reclaim bodily autonomy, and encourages us to amplify
our voices to be heard. Disarming, funny, charming, and powerful, this is a vital account of personal
accomplishment that will open eyes and change minds.

Martha Shelley

Shelley, who organized the first protest march in New York City after the 1969 Stonewall Riot and helped found the history-changing Gay Liberation Front, will read from her new memoir, We Set the Night on Fire. Discussion and book signing to follow.
