Very excited to have been invited to speak at the Women of the World Festival in Baltimore, MD on October 7th, 2016 as founding director of Pen Parentis on the topic "Being Fearless." Interested in finding out more? Here is the link.
The Women of the World Festival was magical. In my session of four "wow-bites" the other three women spoke on The Graying of AIDS, 25 Acts of Kindness, and Finding the Strength to Parent a Mentally Ill Child. My topic was last - and very well received. A lovely woman named Burgundy came up after the conference and told me I had inspired her to go back to the novel she planned to write after coming home from the Peace Corps--a novel she had abandoned when she got married and had a child. Go Burgundy! Write that novel!
