Join Word Up Community Bookshop and Feminist Press in launching Love War Stories, by debut writer Ivelisse Rodriguez, which documents how “love wars” break out between generations of Puerto Rican women, as individuals find themselves caught between community expectation, violence, and grief. Ivelisse is the fiction editor at Kweli Journal.
At Word Up, she will be in conversation with literary programmer Jennifer Baker, creator and host of the podcast Minorities in Publishing, and editor of the forthcoming Everyday People: The Color of Life—A Short Story Anthology.
Books will be available for sale, or you can preorder one here: https://www.wordupbooks.com/book/9781936932252. Thank you for supporting the author and Word Up!
