Women Lit Launch Event at The Pines, Sausalito, January 2018

More than 100 women gathered at The Pines, a restored Victorian mansion in Sausalito, for the kick-off event for Women Lit. Festival founder and director Cherilyn Parsons unveiled the name “Women Lit” and the society itself, and authors Sylvia Brownrigg, Joyce Maynard and Sarah Manyika gave short readings and a conversation followed by questions from the audience.
