- Taking a look at her latest publication, “unbelieve. poems on the journey to becoming a heretic”;
- Catalysts into deconstruction and becoming aware of the downfalls of white evangelicalism. Including books, relationships, political change, and taking the Bible seriously;
- Challenging historical assumption of white hegemony;
- On farts. Her book “What makes you fart?”;
- Challenging assumptions that are canon in evangelicalism like abortion, immigration, and power.
- What do you love and discussing freedom.
- What’s next, and new possibilities.
Marla Taviano is the author of a whole bunch of books (but just read her most recent, unbelieve, because it’s pretty much the only one she can still get behind). She’s a mom to some really awesome kids and loves books and justice and rainbows and poems. She wears her heart on her t-shirts and is on a mission to live wholefarted (not a typo).
