Books symbolize a desire to preserve history, to dream, to create, to share, and even if I can’t read the language they’re written in I believe in their power.

“One of the things most meaningful to me about The Festival is the serendipity of meeting other writers and forming a lively literary community. I hadn’t expected that so many unique and stunningly talented women writers would come to our Festival. I feel my own writing has been enriched by the exchange with this diverse community of writers.”
