    An Evening with Author Christian Livermore

    Event Description:
    Join us on November 19th from 5-6 PM for an hour of reflective essays with Author, Christian Livermore at the Hygienic Art Gallery. She will read sections from her memoir, “We Are Not Okay.”

    Christian Livermore grew up a shy little girl in a turbulent family sunk in poverty, violence, substance abuse and mental illness. In “We Are Not Okay,” Livermore’s deeply personal and moving essays explore what it means to grow up poor in America and ask whether it is possible to outrun the shame it grinds into your bones. She excoriates the inhumanity in how the United States treats its poor and asks the nation to confront how growing up poor in America brutalizes us and warps our perspective on ourselves, on other people and on the world.
