    Book launch with Chana Porter

    The Berlin Writers' Workshop presents a reading with Chana Porter to celebrate the launch of THE THICK AND THE LEAN.

    Lambda Award finalist Chana Porter's THE THICK AND THE LEAN is a startling fable of the entwined perils of capitalism, body politics, and the stigmas women face for appetites of every kind. Join in the conversation exploring topics such as Big Agriculture and land rights, pleasure as rebellion, and how imagined realities might offer a clearer perspective on the world.
