Female Freedom: Martha Bátiz & Jessamine Chan
October 02 at 1:30pm
Mexican-Canadian author Martha Bátiz and American author Jessamine Chan discuss their newest books where female protagonists depend on the decisions of men for their survival. In Chan’s debut novel, The School For Good Mothers, a woman finds herself in a government reform programme trying to regain custody of her child. No Stars in the Sky, Batiz’s collection of short stories, explores the struggles of women and children in South America and international borders, as well as the racial and domestic violence that affects many women around the world.
Interviewed by Lauren Kirshner.
