Pussy Riot!: A Punk Prayer for Freedom

It was just last February when the Russian feminist punk collective Pussy Riot performed their "Punk Prayer" at a Moscow cathedral asking for the Virgin Mary to "banish" Vladimir Putin. For their actions, three of the five women who performed that day were sentenced to two years in a prison camp. However, one of the bandmates was released this October after it was decided she played too small a role to serve the full sentence. She has since reported that in the camp there is no hot water, warm clothes, or access to adequate medicine and medical care. To raise money for the group, the Feminist Press has published an e-book, Pussy Riot!: A Punk Prayer for Freedom. Tonight, Eileen Myles, Laurie Weeks, Barbara Browning, Vivien Goldman, Johanna Fateman, and Justin Vivian Bond will read excerpts from their contributions to the book.
