The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
59. American Women


Moderator: Zsuzsi Gartner

Addressing issues including gender roles and bodily autonomy, three female authors offer keen perceptions on boldly defining oneself in the face of contentious political divides.

The current American administration has sparked ongoing and contentious political debate about —among other things—gender roles and bodily autonomy. In light of so much turmoil, how are female writers defining themselves? Pulitzer Prize finalist and essayist Elif Batuman (The Idiot); creative powerhouse, graphic novelist, Wonder Woman writer and novelist G. Willow Wilson (The Bird King) and O Magazine-praised author Joanne Ramos (The Farm) dive into the themes, politics and events driving American women writers today. Bold and brilliant, these three authors offer keen perceptions on how we define ourselves in the face of contentious political divides.

Elif Batuman is presented thanks to the donors of the Hal Wake Legacy Fund.
