Newburyport Literary Festival Features
"Women Writing About Women" April 26

At the annual Newburyport (Mass.) Literary Festival April 25-27, novelist and poet Julia Older will be on a panel discussing "Women Writing About Women."

Older is the author of This Desired Place, an award-winning New World swashbuckler of fish wives and witches, pirates and Puritans, and The Island Queen, based on the life of writer Celia Thaxter. Both novels are set on the Isles of Shoals about ten miles northeast of Newburyport — as the cormorant flies.

Other participants in the many events scheduled during the Festival include NEA chairman Dana Gioia, poets X.J. Kennedy and Rhina Espaillat, and novelists Joe Hurka (Before) and Anne Easter Smith (A Rose for the Crown).
