Women And Words: Jove and Andi! Together again!

Women and Words 

Week of 23-29 July 2016

Jove’s #epicroadtrip came to a close last week, so we talked a bit about that and how traveling together as a family can cause stress, but also create all kinds of bonding moments.

23 July: Regular Women and Words reader Ted Beveridge steps in to do a Reader’s Perspective blog with us. Ted’s a sci fi fan, so he provides a round-up of some of his fave F/F and feminist sci fi, along the theme of “escapism.”

24 July: Author Darla Baker joins us to chat about her latest, Eagle Cove, and “imposter syndrome.” This is a book in the Thalia Chase, sex therapist series.

25 July: Author Yvonne Heidt does a tongue-in-cheek blog and supplies us with a copy of the acceptance speech Jove was supposed to read at GCLS (but things went slightly awry) if Yvonne’s book won in its category (it did; Yvonne couldn’t make it to GCLS this year).
