Page Breaks – 15 September – ‘How America Invented the White Woman Who Just Loves Fall’

We’re starting off Page Breaks 2021-2022 on 15 September with a discussion of seasonal culture – what it is, who defines it, how its impact registers, and more!

“But if everything white girls indulge in come autumn is basic, then so is the aesthetic and mythology of America’s past, one this country has cultivated and sold to the masses since Thanksgiving was invented.”
