Author and magical activist Starhawk previews City of Refuge, sequel to the best-selling The Fifth Sacred Thing, at this panel on making activism accessible and compelling through fiction. Debut novelists and longtime organizers Diana Block (Clandestine Occupations: An Imaginary History), Steve Masover (Consequence) and Kate Raphael (Murder Under The Bridge: A Palestine Mystery) join.

Behind the marathon meetings, the hours of diligent preparation, and the methodical work involved in making social change, heartbreaking, hair raising, life affirming stories lie hidden. Too often these stories remain invisible or are co-opted by the corporate media in sensationalistic ways to serve the status quo. How do we as activists transform our lived experiences into page-turning, imaginative fiction that can move both activist readers and people who have never participated in a social movement?

And who are your favorite radical storytellers?

This workshop is part of a full day of events at the Howard Zinn Bookfair,
