Review:

“There is a romance about faraway, desperate places, about isolation, about ice and snow. Add penguins and you have Midge Raymond’s elegant My Last Continent, a love story about the Antarctic and the creatures, humans included, who are at home there. Half adventure, half elegy, and wholly recommended.” – Karen Joy Fowler, author of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves

This monthly series features women writers of fiction, nonfiction, memoir, poetry, and other genres who will read from or perform their work and engage in dialogues with audience members.

The occasional parings of multiple voices for cultural and literary resonance will add another dimension to the series, the aim of which is to celebrate the diversity of women’s voices, provide a venue for literary expression, and acknowledge the importance and validity of every woman’s story, however it is told.

The series is curated by Judy Reeves, author of Wild Women, Wild Voices.
