Connections Radio – September 23, 2023

Hosts Laurie Fitz and Rick Bernardo join U.Conn. Professor of English, well-known author, and humorist, Gina Barreca, to discuss the 3rd and recent book of her edited “Fast Women” series: Fast Fallen Women: 75 Essays of Flash Nonfiction (Woodhall Press). These 75 new essays are about the dangerous and enthralling ways women fall—and how they get back on their feet, more deft, more decisive, and more daring than ever. Our conversation includes the authentic values of feminism, the power of humor, and how this book’s celebration of the fallen woman gives whispered conversation a full voice that is long overdue. – /
