Tonight at Reading Frenzy, former Punk Planet editor Anne Elizabeth Moore reads from Cambodian Grrrl, a book documenting her experiences teaching self-publishing at a women's college in Cambodia.
Sarah Mirk says:
Anne Elizabeth Moore is an experienced activist, adventurer, and zinester. But she finds herself in over her head when she signs up to teach self-publishing to teenage girls at one of Cambodia's only women's colleges.
