Living Literature Presents "Phenomenal Women" @ Central
In celebration of Women's History Month, Living Literature presents Phenomenal Women, a 40-minute, two-person readers theater-style medley of poetry, prose, and history that celebrate women. For this program we showcase some of our favorite pieces from the 19th Amendment, Mothers & Daughters, and Pearls & Politics programs, celebrating women’s voices, both past and present, who inspire us!
