Women’s Bookstore Boxing!
As a New Yorker, September 11th has a particular meaning — especially this year on the 10th anniversay. One way of honoring the friends and fellow citizens who lost their lives is to embrace all that is positive and wonderful about life!
So, if you looking for something to do that is positive and fun, come on down to BookCourt in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn for a fabulous evening of women’s boxing and readings about boxing!
The evening will include a wonderful exhibition of the sport by Alicia “Slick” Ashley and Camille Currie!
At 43, Ashley is the oldest women’s boxing champion having recently defended her WBC Super Bantamweight World Championship title against the much younger Christina Ruiz. Alicia has also been Camille’s trainer and was in her corner when she won the 2008 Daily News Golden Gloves Championship at 132 lbs. Camille Currie will be making her professional boxing debut on September 17th.
The literary part of the evening will include Australian national women’s boxing champion, Mischa Merz, reading from her boxing memoir, The Sweetest Thing and author and radio personality Binnie Klien, reading from her boxing memoir, Blows to the Head.
Details of the event are as follows!
