This event was designed and run by UNF English students to celebrate women's accomplishments. The event will take place in the Main Library downtown during Art Walk. It will feature local published women writers reading their own work and answering questions from the audience, make-your-own bookmark stations, various interactive booths where you can learn and talk about women's accomplishments in various fields.
It is an easy event to come walk through--you don't have to stay the whole hour and a half to enjoy it! But if you stay the whole time you will get to hear a lot of work by women writers and have a lot of fun with us!
