Ordinary Women: Extraordinary Heroines – A New Paradigm for the Modern Heroine
She Writes reading featuring Audrey Niffenegger, Zoe Zolbrod, Teri Coyne, and others.
Hosted by She Writes and Teri Coyne.
Join author Teri Coyne (The Last Bridge) and authors from the ground-breaking web community She Writes (www.shewrites.com) for a special reading celebrating the extraordinary heroics of “ordinary” women; fresh female characters who are often flawed but willful protagonists who rely on intelligence, wit, and survival skills to find themselves or shake things up. She Writes is the leading online destination for women writers. Since June 2009, more than 10,000 women writers from more than 30 countries and all 50 states have signed on to share knowledge, support, and network.
Along with Coyne, Audrey Niffenegger and Zobrod, authors Amina Gautier and Emily Gray Tedrowe will be joining the reading. Gautier has been anthologized in the 2009 and 2010 editions of Best African American Fiction, and Tedrowe is the author of Communters.
