Reflections on Women’s History Month

Eltham Library hosted the third annual Women’s History Month event on March 2 with some fantastic authors. As a celebration of International Women’s Day, there were four stimulating sessions, free coffee from the Teapot Café, and lots of networking with supper and a glass of champagne at the end of the day.

Panel topics included: ‘Writing fiction about the other’ and ‘The myths of gender roles in history’. 

After lunch the authors shared insightful stories about getting their novels published, and there was a writing exercise for audience members wanting to construct unforgettable and compelling characters. 

   

Read some of the authors:

The Lace Weaver,

What the Woods Keep

Two Generations

Falling Pomegranate Seeds

All the Tears in China

Into the World

The House by the Lake

Author Wendy Dunn has also shared her thoughts on the day. See here: Reflecting about Women’s History Month, 2019 at Eltham Library.
