Girls Fall Down: An Online Symposium

We were blessed back in fall 2011 to have Maggie Helwig, an activist, curate, and extraordinary woman of letters, post some poetry on Catholic Commons.  As her most recent novel, Girls Fall Down, has started to make serious waves, we thought it would be worthwhile to host an online Symposium to discuss the novel and its many points of intersection with theology, politics, and social theory.  Over the next two weeks we will post a number of pieces that deal specifically with various aspects of this novel, and will round it off with an interview with the author herself.  We hope it proves edifying, and more to the point we hope it motivates some of you to purchase the novel and read it for yourselves.
