Event description

Description

In the 80's and 90's you could see graffiti just about everywhere in Boston: on the Statehouse, on the Longfellow Bridge, all over Harvard Square, in the South End, on Mass Ave. and almost every street. This lively slideshow will revisit older graffiti messages, and show what has being written this year, from wars past and present, the AIDS crisis, Pride, abortion, racism... Ever wonder if girls and women do graffiti? Come and find out!

Doors and reception at 6:00pm. Reading begins at 6:30, followed by a short Q&A and book signing.
