Poster Girl: Shelley Blanton-Stroud in conversation with Linda Joy Meyers
December 3 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Join Shelley Blanton-Stroud in conversation about her new novel, Poster Girl, with Linda Joy Meyers – a must for fans of historical fiction!
A former professor at Sacramento State University, Blanton-Stroud earned the moniker “Raymond Chandler for feminists” for her literary female-driven historical book series, set in and around the Bay Area during World War II. Her new novel, Poster Girl, centers around the real women behind “Rosie the Riveter,” who took on welding jobs in Richmond’s shipyards in a compelling mystery that casts light on the struggle for women’s and minority rights, the labor movement, and the forces of social changes at the time. The San Francisco Book Review praised the book as “an excellent read…torn out of the headlines of World War II…with sympathetic characters, set in a place and time that leaps off the page.”
Linda Joy Myers is the author of two memoirs, Don’t Call Me Mother and Song of the Plains, and four books on memoir writing. She’s also the founder of the National Association of Memoir Writers. The Forger of Marseille is her first novel. She lives in Berkeley, CA.
