Women Writing History

In celebration of LSE’s acquisition of the Women’s Library|, our distinguished panel will discuss the role of women in literature, the arts and academia today.

Her most recent projects are Week in Hell, in which she locked herself in a hotel room, covered the walls in paper, and filled 270 square feet of wall with art and Shell Game, a series of large-scale paintings about the revolutions of 2011 that will be shown together publicly in Spring 2013. Her work is in the permanent collection of the New York Historical Society, the Rubin Museum of Art, and the Groucho Club (London). She writes for CNN and Vice. Molly's published books include Discordia (with Laurie Penny; Random House UK, 2012), Devil in the Details (IDW, 2012), Saints and Sinners (IDW, 2012), Week in Hell (2012), Puppet Makers (DC Comics, 2011), and the forthcoming Straw House (First Second Books, 2014).
