Chapters Reading Series & Girls Write Now

As you may know, I’m on the board of Girls Write Now, the peerless mentoring organization that pairs women writers with girls from the New York City public schools. If you like great fiction and care about girls’ education (and why would you be here if that weren’t true?) and you live in New York, you might add the Chapters series to your calendar for spring. The line-up is great!

Beginning Friday, February 26, please join us for a series of evenings, featuring Girls Write Now students and the professional writers who inspire them, at the Center for Fiction (, 17 East 47th Street, between Fifth and Madison. Each event will take place from 6-8PM, and admission is free and open to the public. 
CHAPTERS also features a line-up of special guest authors, curated by Maud Newton
Friday, February 26: Dolen Perkins-Valdez, author of Wench
Friday, March 26: Nami Mun, author of Miles From Nowhere
Friday, April 23: Lizzie Skurnick, author of Shelf Discovery
Friday, May 21: Ru Freeman, author of A Disobedient Girl
Friday, June 18: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, author of The Thing Around Your Neck
