Join us for a reading of three new novels exploring feminism:
Vera’s Will, by Shelley Ettinger
Play for Me, by Celine Keating
On Hurricane Island, by Ellen Meeropol
Three new novels written by women and published by indie presses explore three different aspects of feminism. Ettinger’s character – grandmother and granddaughter – embody the changing cultural landscape of love and shame; Keating’s Lily radically upends her life to rediscover her authentic self, lost to a focus on marriage and motherhood; Meeropol’s characters, caught up in a national security nightmare, refuse to be victims. Three very different stories ask us to consider how we follow our political and creative passions.
