RADICAL HOPE: LETTERS OF LOVE AND DISSENT IN DANGEROUS TIMES

RADICAL HOPE: LETTERS OF LOVE AND DISSENT IN DANGEROUS TIMES

Dear friends,

I am deeply honored to tell you that Radical Hope: Letters of Love and Dissent in Dangerous Times will be released by Vintage on May 2.

I launched this book in the wake of the November 2016 election, and spent the winter furiously editing and curating the voices of a range of leading authors into a kaleidoscopic meditation on navigating these times. Below, you'll find a full list of the incredibly brilliant and inspiring contributors, as well as details on launch events in the Bay Area and New York featuring many of these writers in conversation. I would be thrilled and honored to see you there.

You can also learn more about the book, or/and pre-order, at www.carolinaderobertis.com.

Thank you for listening, and please know I send my love and all best wishes--

Carolina
