Event description

Description

To celebrate Intenational Women's Day Wandsworth Town Library invites you to an event with Ana Sampson, who will be talking about the hidden history of women’s writing. Ana is a Deputy Publicity Director of Quercus Books and a poetry anthologist. Her most recent anthology, She is Fierce: Brave, Bold and Beautiful Poems by Women, published by Macmillan, led her to discover a rich seam of wonderful poetry by women that hadn’t made it into the literary canon.

The talk looks at the reasons why more women didn’t write, publish or make it into the ‘greatest hits’ of English Literature in previous centuries, and tells the little known stories of some of the amazing women who did buck this trend.
