“I wish I could be 50!”

This was my hands-down (pun intended) favourite reaction from one of the women attending the launch of the book in Ottawa last week. And no, she wasn’t 85; she was 30!

But she was so inspired by the wit, wisdom and warmth coming from the contributors who read that she suddenly aspired to embrace maturity years ahead of her time.

In less than two hours, we’ll be testing the reactions of women here in Toronto at an event at Ben McNally’s bookstore, featuring readings by Sheila Deane, Judy Rebick, Lyndsay Green, Gail Kerbel, Beth Atcheson, Meri Collier and Renate Mohr. Stay tuned!
