Jennifer Kabat

When Jennifer Kabat moved from London to the Catskills in 2005, she had no idea it was the site of the Anti-Rent War, an early episode of American rural populism. Wandering the mountains, and building friendships within the local community, Kabat’s book, The Eighth Moon, weaves a multilayered meditation on history, resistance, and nature in a part of upstate New York that has long been a refuge for New Yorkers in search of a rural idyll. Kabat is in conversation with festival co-director Aaron Hicklin. Presented in association with the DVAA and Radio Catskill.
