Strong, bold female protagonists can often inspire readers to overcome restrictions that threaten to interrupt their own lives. Pulitzer-winning author Jennifer Egan, Turkish-British novelist Elif Shafak, and Portuguese writer Inês Pedrosa have created unforgettable female characters including a pioneering U.S. Navy diver, an adventurous trio of Muslim students at Oxford, and three generations of spirited Portuguese women. Join us for a special discussion as these writers tell author and editor Elissa Schappell why they chose to bring these women into worlds that were not always ready, or able, to deal with them.

Credit card sales only at the venue.
