Some Favorite Writers:
Literature & Gender at the Hammer
TUESDAY DEC 2, 2014
7:30PM

 

Women read more fiction than men. Women write more fiction than men. But are women fairly represented in modern literary criticism and the publishing world? Carmen Giménez Smith of VIDA – an organization working to increase critical attention to contemporary women’s writing and gender inequality in literary culture – will lead a discussion with four of the most influential women writers in the country: Elaine Blair, Ruth Franklin, Michelle Huneven, and Mona Simpson.

This series of readings is organized by Mona Simpson, the author of Casebook, My Hollywood, Anywhere But Here, and Off Keck Road. Readings are followed by discussions with Simpson.
