In Burning Girls and Other Stories, Veronica Schanoes crosses borders and genres with stories of fierce women at the margins of society burning their way toward the center. Fairy tales are reimagined, repurposed, and remixed, drawing deeply from leftist, labor, women’s, and Jewish history, as well as folklore and pop culture. Join us to discuss these imaginative and explosive stories. Class will meet in-person and/or on Zoom. $60 for NSS Beth El members and $125 for guests (includes a paperback copy of Burning Girls). Register for Summer Stories.
