House of Many Gods

Thursday, January 19 @ 7:00 pm

From Kiana Davenport, the bestselling author of Song of the Exile and Shark Dialogues, comes another mesmerizing novel about her people and her islands. Told in spellbinding and mythic prose, House of Many Gods is a deeply complex and provocative love story set against the background of Hawaii and Russia. Interwoven throughout with the indelible portrait of a native Hawaiian family struggling against poverty, drug wars, and the increasing military occupation of their sacred lands.

Center for New Words:
Where Women's Words Matter!

The Center for New Words wedges open space for progressive women's words to flourish. Its programs support diverse women's engagement with the entire “"word cycle,"” from literacy, to blogging, to literary writing, to opinion-making in the media and other domains of influence. CNW not only changes individual lives; it changes our broader social and political conversations. Our mission is to develop word-based programs to strengthen the roles of progressive and marginalized women in the world.

Voices for New Words

"New Words, you have crossed borders and included us all on your bookshelves and in projects and programs organized by your store. Now again, you cross a new frontera in your search to empower us as storytellers and women. I am proud of you for not stopping at success but being courageous enough to change as the needs change... Your leadership and vision are more necessary now than ever. Pa'lante!"

--Julia Alvarez, acclaimed author (In the Name of Salome, In the Time of the Butterflies)

"The idea of having an institute for women's writing -- for women from all generations -- is a brilliant move on the part of the New Words Bookstore. Given the desire to work in neighbourhoods that include Mattapan, Dorchester, Chelsea and Roxbury, it is evident that the project will be of interest to women who have a wide variety of interests. In this way, they are ensuring that we continue to make history in circumstances (almost) of our own choosing!"

--Kum-Kum Bhavnani, Founding Editor, Meridians: Feminism, Race, Transnationalism; Director, Women, Culture and Development Program, University of California, Santa Barbara

"The Center for New Words is a creative and necessary next step in the cultivation of an open and inclusive civil society. At this juncture in the American political and cultural context, we urgently need to find ways to give power and space to diverse women's voices. CNW will play a national role in doing just this."

--Barbara Ehrenreich, Political analyst; renowned author

"New Words Bookstore has always been a place where the voices of women are listened to and heard. Authors, readers, scholars and activists alike have found a home here in the best sense of the word: a place where one's ideas and one's life are accepted and encouraged to grow. This kind of space is more important now than ever, which is why I'm so enthusiastic about the creation of the Center for New Words. I'm confident that in the coming decades, we will turn to the Center for New Words again and again to inspire and transmit women's voices in ways we have not yet even imagined."

--Carol Gilligan, Feminist scholar, groundbreaking feminist psychologist; author (In a Different Voice, The Birth of Pleasure)

"With imagination, extraordinary industry and a belief in the words and organizational abilities of women, they will create something new, a Center that will build bridges to the next generation. I believe that the women who fiercely sustained New Words Bookstore will do it."

--Grace Paley, poet and author (Enormous Changes at the Last Minute, Begin Again)

"With women's bookstores and presses folding all over the map like the tents of a defeated army, New Words is taking bold measures not only to survive but to become a more relevant, outreaching and vibrant institution in the Boston area. Their plans are ambitious, but a visionary approach is exactly what is needed. I applaud their plans and hope to be a part of them." Casino en Linea

--Marge Piercy, Groundbreaking feminist author and poet (The Moon is Always Female, Gone to Soldiers, Woman on the Edge of Time)
