EMWF Panel: Women, Interrupted

Hosted by Eden Mills Writers’ Festival

Life can be a puzzle made up of pieces that don’t fit the way we’d hoped. Family, sexuality, relationships, work, desire, hope, healing, time and circumstance… things can get, well, a little complicated. This panel will explore the world through the eyes of complex female characters who come alive in the pages of four vibrant new works of fiction. Join Zoe Whittall in conversation with Emily Austin, Shashi Bhat and Uzma Jalaluddin as they introduce you to fictional women you won’t soon forget.

Presenters: Emily Austin (Everyone in This Room Will Someday Be Dead), Shashi Bhat (The Most Precious Substance on Earth) and Uzma Jalaluddin (Hana Khan Carries On).

Host: Zoe Whittall (The Spectacular
