Hello there! If you’re reading this, it means the world hasn’t imploded (yet) and people still do things go to live lit shows and listen to people tell stories. This bodes well for first-time TASW performer Deborah Siegel, and all of us!
Deborah Siegel is the author of Sisterhood, Interrupted: From Radical Women to Grrls Gone Wild (Palgrave), co-editor of the literary anthology Only Child (Random House), founder of the group blog Girl w/Pen and co-founder of She Writes, the largest online community for women who write. A PhD in English and American Literature, she is a Visiting Scholar in Gender and Sexuality Studies at Northwestern University and a Senior Facilitator with The OpEd Project. Her work has appeared in venues including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, CNN.com, The Forward, Slate, The Huffington Post, The American Prospect, Ms., More, and Psychology Today, in multiple anthologies, and on her blogs. She has been featured on The Today Show and at TEDx. Deborah is currently engaged in a multimedia experiment in thinking aloud, and in community, about gender and early childhood, which encompasses illustrated essays, a Pinterest board (Tots in Genderland), and more. When not writing about the unfinished business of feminism or her young boy/girl twins, she serves as a public voice and thought leadership coach and helps others with powerful messages create meaningful platforms for their ideas.
