Virtual - Literary Café Celebrates Women's History Month
Thursday, March 23, 2023
We're excited to partner with the Cary Library for its next Literary Cafe which will mark Women's History Month with a panel presentation, hosted by Lexington's Marjan Kamali (author of TOGETHER TEA and THE STATIONERY SHOP). Award-winning authors Joy Castro (ONE BRILLIANT FLAME), Ava Homa (DAUGHTERS OF SMOKE AND FIRE), and Katherine Sherbrooke (LEAVING COY’S HILL) will discuss the portrayal of women in fiction, the responsibility of telling stories about women who have been hidden from history, and how writing about women's lives impacts women's futures.
