TimesTalks at The New School: Jill Soloway and Hannah Gadsby

Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

John L. Tishman Auditorium, University Center 63 Fifth Avenue, Room U100, New York, NY 10003

New York Times gender editor Jessica Bennett moderates a conversation with Jill Soloway, the Emmy-winning screenwriter, director and author, and Hannah Gadsby, star of the award-winning stand up show “Nanette,” as they discuss Soloway’s upcoming book She Wants It: Desire, Power, and Toppling the Patriarchy. Soloway’s latest memoir follows their evolution from straight, married mother of two to identifying as queer and non-binary. With unbridled insight that offers a rare front seat to the inner workings of the #MeToo movement and its aftermath, Jill captures the zeitgeist of a generation with thoughtful and revolutionary ideas about gender, inclusion, desire, and consent.

Presented in collaboration with TimesTalks and the Executive Dean's Office at the Schools of Public Engagement at The New School.
