Xan Joi Reading & Discussion

  • Nightbird Books 205 W Dickson St Fayetteville AR 72701 (map)

Xan Joi is coming through Fayetteville with her book But What Can I Do? as part of her national activism tour.

But What Can I Do? is written and recently published by Xan Joi, a self-proclaimed radical Jewish and white lesbian anti-racist womonist/feminist. It is an inspiring communiqué aimed at creating a common, shared knowledge base from which to foment individual and collective action dismantling patriarchy, racism, war, misogyny and creating the kind of society we want all to thrive in!

Since 9/11, Xan has driven over 400,000 miles in her veggie-oil powered box truck, all four sides of which are mobile billboards emblazoned with large, pointed anti-war, anti-violence, pro-peace, pro-empowerment missives.

Xan shares her stories of interactions with both the ‘choir’ and the ‘other’, as well as her understandings and connections grown over 60 plus years of experience and activism. Today, as the threat of impending annihilation – this time of the entire planet, not ‘just’ a people or a race, a land or a country – looms closer and more real than the last presidential electoral college appointment and supreme court anointment, many people are feeling the intense pain of ‘waking up’ and the critical need to engage in some kind of action.

But What Can I Do? offers answers to that very question.
