In conversation with Lupita Aquino. In-person reading, discussion, audience Q&A and book-signing.
Creep is Myriam Gurba’s informal sociology of creeps, a deep dive into the dark recesses of the toxic traditions that plague the United States and create the abusers who haunt our books, schools, and homes. Through cultural criticism disguised as personal essay, Gurba studies the ways in which oppression is collectively enacted, sustaining ecosystems that unfairly distribute suffering and premature death to our most vulnerable. Yet identifying individual creeps, creepy social groups, and creepy cultures is only half of this book’s project–the other half is examining how we as individuals, communities, and institutions can challenge creeps and rid ourselves of the fog that seeks to blind us.
Gurba will be in conversation with Lupita Aquino. Aquino –better known as Lupita Reads– is a passionate literary enthusiast amplifying and highlighting books written by authors of color through her Instagram blog.
