An Evening with Rebecca Solnit

Rebecca Solnit is the 2018 Zale-Kimmerling writer-in-residence. Writer, historian, and activist Rebecca Solnit is the author of twenty books on feminism, western and indigenous history, popular power, social change and insurrection, wandering and walking, hope and disaster. Her books include The Mother

of All Questions, Men Explain Things to Me, Hope in the Dark, and, with Rebecca Snedeker, Unfathomable City: A New Orleans Atlas. Her honors and awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship, the National Book Critics Circle Award in Criticism, and two NEA fellowships. She is a product of the California public education system from kindergarten to graduate school.

Each year since 1985, the Zale-Kimmerling Writer-in-Residence Program has brought a renowned woman writer to the Newcomb/Tulane campus to spend a week among readers and student writers who are eager for insight. Coordinated through the Newcomb College Institute, and facilitated by a committee composed of Newcomb-Tulane College students, faculty, and NCI staff, the Zale Kimmerling Writer-in-Residence program was established by Dana Zale Gerard, NC ‘85, and made possible by an annual gift from the M.B. and Edna Zale Foundation of Dallas, Texas.
