October 6 at 7 pm
Antigone Books, 411 N 4th Avenue, Tucson
Local writers Mel Blumenthal, Bethany Evans, Noël Hennessey and Penelope Starr (reading her story, Crazy Love) will share work from their new (and first) collection, Best of FST!: Female StoryTellers Anthology.
FST! Female StoryTellers was founded in 2012 as a way to empower women to share their stories and promote feminism and equality in the community. Though their primary mission is to provide women with a space to speak freely, FST! also donates a portion of profits to local organizations for women, children and the arts.
Best of FST! features 37 passionate stories and commemorates the fifth anniversary of this unique Tucson institution, a monthly storytelling night where women, trans, and gender nonconforming folks are the stars.
