It certainly has been an eventful year for women in arts and entertainment. While there have been fantastic steps forward, this year has bought some troubling reminders of the struggles women face in political, social, and professional scopes. GLOC is participating as part of the That’s What She Said: Conversations with Women Writers/Comics panel presented as part of Public Assembly‘s Etcetera Festival celebrating art, talks, films, comedy, learning, music and dancing. Panelists for this event include GLOC founder Glennis McCarthy, former SNL cast member and author Rachel Dratch, storyteller Elna Baker (The Moth, This American Life, Studio 360, Radiolab), author and storyteller Kambri Crews (92Y, UCB, the Moth, Ochi’s Lounge), and comedian Karen Bergreen (Gotham, Comic Strip, Caroline’s). The event takes place on Wednesday, September 19th and is FREE. I repeat, this brilliant event is FREE. Make your way to Public Assembly for a night of discussion about women, comedy, literature, a reflection on the year past, and a look towards the future.
