Roxanne Dunbar Ortiz and Breanne Fahs talk about their writings on radical women. This event will feature Breanne Fahs' "Valerie Solanas: The Defiant Life of the Woman who Wrote SCUM (and Shot Andy Warhol)" by Breanne Fahs, Feminist Press, 2014

Too drastic, too crazy, too "out there," too early, too late, too damaged, too much: Valerie Solanas has been dismissed but never forgotten. She has become, unwittingly, a figurehead for women's unexpressed rage, and stands at the center of many worlds. She inhabited Andy Warhol's Factory scene, circulated among feminists and the countercultural underground, charged men money for conversation, despised "daddy's girls," and outlined a vision for radical gender dystopia. Known for shooting Andy Warhol in 1968 and for writing the polemical diatribe SCUM Manifesto, Solanas is one of the most famous women of her era. SCUM Manifesto which predicted ATMs, test-tube babies, the Internet, and artificial insemination long before they existed has sold more copies, and has been translated into more languages, than nearly all other feminist texts of its time.

This book is the first biography about Solanas, including original interviews with family, friends (and enemies), and numerous living Warhol associates.
