oin Emily Books at Ace Hotel’s Liberty Hall on September 10 for the first Emily Books Symposium: What is Women’s Writing? To celebrate the launch of their new Coffee House Press imprint, Emily Books is investigating what “women’s writing” means at this moment in history. What’s exciting and different about the new novels that are shaping our culture? How can we rewrite the canon to include the non-male voices that have shaped us? Why has it taken so long for honest, unvarnished depictions of women’s subjectivity to take center stage in literary fiction? What is the next barrier to break down, and how will we do it? We’ll talk about all this and more as editors Caroline Casey (CHP), Laia Garcia (Lenny Letter), Megan Lynch (Ecco), agent Mel Flashman and National Book Foundation executive director Lisa Lucas sit down for a panel discussion with Emily and Ruth, to answer the question what is women’s writing?
