Ordinary Women: Extraordinary Heroines May 12th - Meet Our Authors!

I am thrilled to announce the second evening in our Ordinary Women: Extraordinay Heroines series at KGB Bar in New York City. Our first evening on January 28th was a huge success thanks to a group of great authors who embodied the spirit of the night and delivered a thought provoking and entertaining evening and to the audience who asked great questions, listened intently and came out on a cold evening!

Our event on May 12th continues our exploration of the work of four distinct and talented writers who defy convention and write about real women and their struggles. In addition we will be spotlighting a great online community devoted to raising the voices of women writers and readers. If you haven't heard about SHE WRITES, jump onto their site and join, it's free and chock full of great and inspiring stuff!

If you are in town on May 12th, come to KGB Bar and join us for a fun and stimulating evening -- we will be raffling off books and a few other goodies. The event is FREE.
