The Dolls That Raised Us

Were you a Doll Person?

At a recent lunchtime conversation in the Lilith office, we realized that dolls were the protagonists of our first creative endeavors—and encouraged us to center women and girls in our stories. Dolls may have also planted some more ambiguous seeds about body image and femininity… We spoke for an hour and could have continued for many more—so that’s exactly what we are going to do! 

Get all dolled up with Lilith for a salon about our most steadfast childhood companions—dolls! From  Madame Alexanders to American Girls, Bratz to Barbies—join us virtually and in person to talk all about dolls and the role they played in developing our sense of self, family, femininity, and creativity.

Facilitated by Lilith’s fiction editor, Yona Zeldis McDonough, and executive editor, Sarah Seltzer, look forward to nibbles, beverages, and provocative questions. If you’d like, please bring a doll as your plus one.

What’s a Lilith Salon? More free-flowing than a book club, less spiritual than a rosh chodesh group, more conversational than a lecture, a salon features lively conversation with folks like you and unlike you, in a relaxed setting. Refreshments and good company will help fuel our talk!
