The story goes that editors Carol Shields and Marjorie Anderson were having lunch one day when they decided that, even with all the good the feminist movement had done, there were still so many unanswered questions; ones that some were afraid to ask or that took them by surprise. They commissioned a number of women writers to give it a voice and Dropped Threads: What We Aren’t Told was the result.
We’ve now come to the third installment, Dropped Threads: Beyond the Small Circle and it’s fiercely carrying on the tradition of honesty, humour and the female community. It’s having a launch in style at Nicholas Hoare tonight at 7pm with a promised attendance of Ann-Marie Macdonald, Judy Rebick, Harriet Hart, Gillian Kerr, June Callwood and Marjorie Anderson.
Look for the women in the colourful shawls who speak as if telling a story by fire side.
