Making Spaces Safer with Shawna Potter

"Every time someone wants me to prove sexism in the scene exists I am not going to tell them about having beer spat in my face while I’m singing or about men screaming 'shut up' while I’m talking between songs. I’m gonna hand them this book and say 'No more horror stories, here are some solutions.'" —Kathleen Hanna, Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, and The Julie Ruin.

Author Talk with Tara Campbell and Raima Larter

Fearless by Raima Larter (novel)
In a near-future Philadelphia, young priest Mike Albertino, worn down by relentless terrorist bombings and overwhelmed by the needs of his frightened parishioners, encounters a being that, for all the world, appears to be an angel. Doubting his own sanity, he soon thereafter meets Jenna, a woman who is incapable of feeling fear. Are these two inexplicable phenomena the workings of terror on the human mind—or has reality shifted forever? Fearless explores themes of faith, how we know what is real, and the myriad ways people cope—whether faith, science, or denial—in our increasingly fear-filled world.

The two come together as colleagues (and then more) as Liberia is gripped in a brutal civil war. Child soldiers kidnap Julia on a remote jungle road, and Carl is evacuated against his will by U.S. Marines.
