Why should you attend?

“In unsentimental but intimate detail, [this] collection of stories peels back stereotypes about the lives of women in the past… In spare but evocative prose, Holladay skillfully and subtly re-creates those earlier times while making clear their parallels to the present… Women and girls often overlooked by history are given compelling voices in this collection.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Seamlessly interwoven by a dream team of historical authors, Ribbons of Scarlet vividly transported me to the tumultuous days of the French Revolution… This timely masterpiece is sure to inspire both courage and caution. A spellbinding read from beginning to end.”—Kristina McMorris, author of Sold on a Monday

“Like Jill McCorkle and Sue Monk Kidd, Spera probes the comfort and strength women find in their own company.”—O Magazine
