Strong, bold female protagonists can often inspire readers to overcome restrictions that threaten to interrupt their own lives. Pulitzer-winning author Jennifer Egan, Turkish-British novelist Elif Shafak, and Portuguese writer Inês Pedrosa have created unforgettable female characters including a pioneering U.S. Navy diver, an adventurous trio of Muslim students at Oxford, and three generations of spirited Portuguese women. Join us for a
