SPOTLIGHT:

Stephanie Nikolopoulos



The Hobart Book Village Festival of Women Writers 2014 welcomes: Stephanie Nikolopoulos

Stephanie Nikolopoulos writes in the blog post:
That’s Cute that You Think You’re Subversive: How the CIA Promoted the Radical Arts During the Cold War

Can something be subversive even if it’s a political ploy?
Whole books could be written in answer to these questions. They’re important topics to consider and discuss, but I want to take a far less Big Brother approach and ask: What are you trying to accomplish by being subversive?
Why do you want to be different?
Where do you get your information and how do you evaluate it?
Who is challenging you to think outside of your own box?
I’m all for dancing to the beat of your own drum. But is that what you’re really doing?
