London, ON – London’s own Louise Fagan will speak to the art of telling women’s stories in the year’s final lecture of the Sophia Series at Brescia University College on Thursday, May 13, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. in the St. James Auditorium. Fagan said she feels that if talking is remembering, then cultivating and sharing women’s stories remains one of the most powerful tools in disseminating women’s history. “From our earliest experiences, stories have provided a common place of understanding our collective experiences – where we’ve been, who we are, and what we’ve felt.”
Fagan has garnered a reputation as an arts entrepreneur adept at bringing an idea to its fullest development. Her recent credits include:
This Sophia Series event is sponsored by The Circle Women’s Centre.
