The Calgary dialogues

Love the idea of the Fictionistas in a panel discussion in Calgary. I was lucky enough to be included in a similar event  with Ami McKay (she of Virgin Cure and Birth House fame) and Frances Greenslade who had just published the wonderful novel Shelter last fall. The three of us had a blast and discussed some important things: mothering, abandonment, the deflowering experience. It was moderated by the amazing (dare I say iconic?) Sharon Butala and proved to be well attended and informative.

I think the more women can speak to themes in fiction, themes in the female experience, the more we will understand and honour each other and collectively move into places of power. Good on Simone Lee of Pages on Kensington for getting a conversation started. Join us.  Join in.

Let’s see, if it’s Calgary it must be May 6th.  Fictionistas crave controversial conversations in Cowtown! Yippee-yahoo

  1. Hi Margaret! I like your style, with this alliterative nod to controversy. My grandfather used to say, “if you’re not in hot water, boil some.” Thanks for your posts.
