|Roundtable Discussion Participants|
The panel I was part of last Saturday expressed concern that March Women's History month was not well-promoted in local libraries and businesses. Some libraries had no displays. Was it promoted in schools?
Women on the panel discussed a number of questions prepared by organizer Brenda Seward of Simple Pleasures Books and Gifts. The panel talked about books we first read growing up, authors we wished to emulate as writers, personal writing heroines, and mentors who helped in our careers as authors.
The event was enlightening about the roles of women in the world and in our own lives. For the future, we need to do what we can to raise awareness of Women's History month.
