Gentile said that after reading the book in jest with a friend she realized that the material there and in so many other publications "was upsetting unless you read them aloud to mock them."

Gentile is an archivist. Giovanniello, 31, who previously worked at the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art in the Brooklyn Museum, is a student of performance studies at New York University, Tisch School of the Arts. They both were "open to experiment in producing some quirky events together," said Giovanniello.
