VIRTUAL - Emily Rapp Black | Frida Kahlo and My Left Leg
Bestselling memoirist Emily Rapp Black is the author of Poster Child, an exploration of her childhood as an amputee and March of Dimes spokesperson; The Still Point of the Turning World, an account of her young son’s diagnosis and death from a rare congenital disease; and Sanctuary, a reflection on the meaning of “resilience” in the midst of grief and new love. Her essays, stories, poems, and reviews have appeared in periodicals such as the New York Times, Vogue, and The Boston Globe, and she is the nonfiction editor of the Los Angeles Review of Books. A former Fulbright scholar and a Guggenheim Fellow, Black teaches Creative Writing at the University of California, Riverside. Black’s new book holds a mirror up to the art, disability, and experiences of Frida Kahlo and explains how Black’s connection with Frida Kahlo helped her better understand her own life.
