Women are truly at the fore and being “grabbed” in so many places these days, it’s time we look at how these four writers captivate their readers with their stunning storylines and characterization. Just how do they create their complicated female characters, and how much do they draw on their own lives to do so? Do these characters’ lives matter more in this political climate? These writers all craft very strong female characters; however, that is not the way women are often portrayed in the media these days. Let these writers seize your hearts and minds. Panelists: Dorothy Allison, Moira Crone, Gabrielle Lucille Fuentes, and Bernice McFadden. Moderator: Nancy Dixon.
