800 Robson Street, Vancouver
From the ash-filled skies of Ethiopia to the frightening maternity wards of the Den, three fictional women grapple with bodily autonomy, the failings of family and the promise of unrestrained futures. In this evocative edition of the Vancouver Writers Fest’s Incite series, up-and-coming literary talents Marjorie Celona (How a Woman Becomes a Lake), Rebecca Fisseha (Daughters of Silence) and Mallory Tater (The Birth Yard) explore the depths of the female experience and the secrets we lock away—and how they reveal themselves in our moments of greatest vulnerability. Moderated by Zoey Leigh Peterson, the Scotiabank Giller Prize longlisted author of Next Year, For Sure.
Presented by the Vancouver Writers Fest in partnership with the Vancouver Public Library with support from the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association.
