If you are based in any of these cities or nearby you may want to attend. You may also want to take this opportunity to invite Selma to speak at your organisation, group, local bookshop or library, or if you are part of a university to refer us to women’s, social or cultural studies, English Literature, politics or history departments at your university. Please let us know.
Selma will also be available to speak during December and January, so please don’t hesitate to be in touch, whether you are located in the south or the north, west or east!
The anthology has had rave reviews and you should already have received an email with these. Here are also two excellent interviews with Selma:
