FEMINIST LUNCHEON PRESENTATION: Tuesday, February 11, 2020, I appeared as guest speaker on my recent book, Never Retreat, and discussed “Beating
My Head Against a Wall: why I continue to write” about the joys and woes of writing. Somewhere inside any person who chases a dream, there’s a little voice saying, “Keep going; don’t give up yet.” That voice might be an angel’s or a demon’s, but it has a definite impact on life.
Holiday Book Fair
I celebrated the last holiday season with 20 authors at author/businesswoman Judith Brile’s home by schmoozing, sipping tea, and mixing with book lovers on November 23. Lots of fun and interesting discussions. Thanks to Judith, who hosts these types of events as well as numerous workshops and services for writers. (See Judith’s offerings at https://AuthorU.org/)
Ever wonder how women a century ago tolerated the restrictions placed on them pre-equal rights and women’s lib? Clue: a number of them didn’t. While strictures then may have been weightier than today, women of independent mind, strong will, and dedicated principles simply ignored the limits society tried to impose and did what they had to do.
Take the women of the Denver Woman’s Press Club. Established in 1898 by nineteen charter members, the group still flourishes, and some members were active in the local and national suffrage movement.
I presented a workshop Monday, July 1, on “Out-of-Date Stereotypes in Character Development.” Sponsored by the Castle Rock Writers, I spoke about contemporary writing which often continues to be dogged by out-of-date stereotypes. I’m available for visits, readings, presentations. Contact me for information.
