Nomy Lamm is a writer, musician and voice teacher who currently lives in San Francisco. Her work “Book of Rules: A Girl’s Guide to Doing What You’re Told” was originally published as a zine and read on tour with Sister Spit in 1999. These excerpts were recorded for Nomy’s 2000 album, Anthem, and later published in Word Warriors: 35 Women Leaders in the Spoken Word Revolution (ed. Alex Olsen, Seal Press, 2007) and in Phati’tude Literary Magazine in 2010. Nomy is thrilled to have the oppurtunity to see dancing bodies give her work new life.
