Women on the Verge

10:00pm EST


These authors’ books may focus on women at different stages and from different walks of life, but they are all united by their common desire to break out of the box patriarchy places them in. Join critically acclaimed novelist Lauren Francis-Sharma (Book of the Little Axe), highly anticipated debut novelist Emily Temple (The Lightness), and award-winning short story writer Laura van den Berg (I Hold a Wolf by the Ears) for a conversation about violence, economics, and colonialism, framed through the persistent shadow of misogyny. Moderated by Emily Firetog, deputy editor of Literary Hub.
