Women Who Roar: Writers

May 26 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Women Who Roar: A Panel on Roaring Women Writers

Wednesday, May 26, 4:00 pm
Online Program

In this monthly series, subject matter experts on themes of art, music, and literature will discuss trailblazing women artists, musicians, and writers from diverse cultural backgrounds whose roaring voices have influenced popular American culture.

Since at least the time of Sappho, women have used words to record their stories, subvert conventions and create worlds. Join some of our region’s own most exciting literary academics, including Dr. Gabrielle Bychowski of Case Western Reserve University, Denise Harrison of Kent State University, and Dr. Lisa Nielson of Case Western Reserve University, as they speak about the work and legacies of women writers who roar. Karen R. Long, manager of the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards at the Cleveland Foundation, will moderate.

We are proud to present this program in connection to the special exhibition, Notorious: RBG: The Life & Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, presented locally by PNC Bank.
