Anne Elizabeth Moore speaks

Anne Elizabeth Moore, a pal of mine from Chicago who has been doing a month-long residency at Providence’s AS220, will speak about her letter press book “New Girl Law” at AS220’s performance space at 6 p.m. Friday, May 30. The book, which she has been working on here, grew out of her amazing work with young feminists in Cambodia last winter (and which was the subject of her blog).

Moore explains: “Initially a self-publishing project, intended to give these 32 young women options for expressing voice under an extremely oppressive government regime, the project grew to include a collaborative rewrite of a traditional Cambodian text called the ‘Chbap Srei,’ or ‘Girl Law.’”

By the bye: That is not Moore pictured above, but rather an April paparazzi shot of the illustrious Pamela Anderson reading Moore’s 2007 book “Unmarketable: Brandalism, Copyfighting, Mocketing, and the Erosion of Integrity.”

Anne Elizabeth Moore speaks at AS220 performance space, 115 Empire St., Providence, 6 p.m., May 20, 2008.
