What does it mean to be a “woman writer”? Does this label tell us anything about the work women create? Or does it pigeon-hole and marginalize us?

Hosted by the Toronto International Festival of Authors, When Women Write will explore what it means to be a “woman writer.” While some welcome this designation, others reject it, leading us to question the need for it. Hosted and moderated by Nora Gold, join the conversation as Loren Edizel, Susan Glickman, C. Fong Hsiung and Tehmina Khan reflect on their own work and how being labeled a “woman writer” has played itself out in their careers. 

This interesting conversation will take part on Wednesday, May 29 at Harbourfront Centre (235 Queen’s Quay E). Get information and tickets here.
