What Women WantSaturday, May 4 | 11:45 AM - 1:00 PM
Aya de Leon, Laura Lindstedt, Lisa Locascio, Tamsen Wolff, moderated by Lisa D. Gray
Join a lively roundtable of four writers with very different novels that address the question of “what women want” in provocative ways. In Aya de Leon’s series of feminist heist novels (latest is “Side Chick Nation”), feisty, sexy women rob the rich and protect the exploited. Finnish author Laura Lindstedt (“Oneiron”) depicts seven radically different women from around the world in a bardo after death, interacting by telling their stories. In “Open Me,” debut author Lisa Locascio has penned a beautifully written coming-of-age novel about a young woman discovering her sexual power. Tamsen Wolff’s “Juno’s Swans” tells a shattering story of friendship, love, and heartbreak between two women; it has been compared with the work of Elena Ferrante.
