Women and Words: What's in YOUR bucket (list)?
Women and Words Overview 1-7 September, 2018
Jove schooled us on the teachers’ strike happening in her district, which means a house full of kids not sure WTF to do with themselves, but fear not! It’s a teachable moment, and Jove is engaging all the youngs with why collective bargaining is important, and what it all means. Go, Jove! Also, Carsen Taite has audiobooks to give away and Clare Ashton had other forms of books to give away while R.G. is trying to empty her bucket list and do all the things. Like archery. She’s tapping her inner Katniss.
1 Sept.: Women and Wordster Ann Etter took a break from chasing her grandkids around to share some of the books that introduced her to F/F fiction.
2 Sept.: Author Clare Ashton stopped by to chat a bit about her latest book, The Goodmans. And she did a giveaway!
5 Sept.: Author and Women and Wordster Carsen Taite is looking for some positivity and if you leave a nice story on her blog, you’ll be considered to win one of four audiobooks she’s giving away!
6 Sept.: Author and Women and Wordster R.G. Emanuelle talked about her bucket lists and some of the things she’s doing to engage.
7 Sept.: Author and Women and Wordster Andi Marquette has a pet peeve about certain terminology and how it diminishes women.
AND BE READY! We’re gearing up for our giant-ass holiday book giveaway, The Hootenanny. We’ll be putting the entry forms up soon.
And the Western Women Writers of NM are holding their all-day gathering 15 September in Albuquerque. Karin Kallmaker, Anne Hillerman, Darynda Jones, and Rena Distasio! Find out more.
Also, the Left Coast Literary Lesbian Conference in Palm Springs is slated for 10-14 October and the keynote speaker is Dorothy Allison! Go see.
