Of Mystic Women, Witches and Tomboys 

Presented by TOPPLE Books. Melissa Faliveno’s Tomboyland navigates the mysterious terrain of androgyny and bisexuality, womanhood and rage, religion and myth, loneliness and love. Ultimately, she asks what it means to live in the spaces between and what it means to come home. In An American Covenant: A Story of Women, Mysticism, and the Making of Modern America, Lucile Scott shares the history of five female mystic leaders over three centuries for whom hope, liberation, and understanding are the foundation for living. Moderated by BRIC TV Chief Correspondent, Brian Vines, the conversation will land in contemporary American culture.
