In town for the Radical Women Conference, hanging out at Muddy Waters
Reading The Revolution Will Not Be Funded: Beyond the Non-Profit Industrial Complex, edited by Incite! Women of Color Against Violence. The book discusses the problems non-profits have in creating social change when big funders--the governments and corporations--may not necessarily want the social change that will ultimately be for the best. Government and corporations don't like radical changes.
Links she recommends checking out: Incite!, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and Southerners on New Ground
Good books she's read recently -- Interpreter of Maladies, by Jhumpra Lahiri and What is the What, by Dave Eggers. Re: What is the What -- be ready when you read it, she said. It's intense.
Books she liked when she was a kid -- Winnie the Pooh, by A.A. Milne; The Little Prince, by Antoine de Saint Exupéry; and Little House on the Prairie, by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
Her own book -- it'd be nonfiction on social justice or maybe geeky sociologist erotica.
