Undaunted and Tomorrow Perhaps the Future
Two new books focus on the influence women have had on groundbreaking writing and journalism from the mid-1800s to the present day. Brooke Kroeger (Undaunted) and Sarah Watling (Tomorrow Perhaps the Future) present portraits of extraordinary writers, artists, and journalists — women “hungry for adventure” and eager to make their name. From Margaret Fuller, reporting from Rome on the revolutions of 1848, to Martha Gellhorn in Madrid, as Spain fell to Franco in 1948, women were on the front lines, telling the story as they saw it. Kroeger and Watling will appear in conversation with Laurie Gwen Shapiro, award-winning author and contributor to The New Yorker and The New York Times.
