That time Andi had to do a reading after Dorothy Allison…

Women and Words Overview 7-13 July 2018

OH, NOEZ, you guys! Jove’s computer up n’ quit this digital coil, leaving Andi to fly solo this week. But it’s okay, because she had a couple of beers and waxed downright poetic (fine—that’s the beer talking) about Twitter threads, defining yourself, Fiona Zedde’s Madrid adventures, and questions that come up from fanfic readers. In the meantime, Jove’s getting things up and running and she’ll be back. Never fear!

7 July: Women and Wordster Ann Etter and her book buddy Anne Pace co-blogged about a few books that have stuck with them. Add yours to the comments!
