It's November 2019 and the times and the building, they are a-changing! This month's recording is being brought to you by the eBar, upstairs, rather than the floor of the bookstore, thanks to some major building upheaval. Steph and Candice look at how people remember stories, how they tell their own stories, and share the details on loads of upcoming speaking events!

Shrewed by Elizabeth Renzetti (can be ordered through the bookstore)
About Shrewed from House of Anansi (publisher):
Why are there so few women in politics? Why is public space, whether it's the street or social media, still so inhospitable to women? What does Carrie Fisher have to do with Mary Wollstonecraft? And why is a wedding ceremony Satan's playground? These are some of the questions that bestselling author and acclaimed journalist Elizabeth Renzetti examines in her new collection of essays. Drawing upon Renzetti's decades of reporting on feminist issues, Shrewed is a book about feminism's crossroads. From Hillary Clinton's failed campaign to the quest for equal pay, from the lessons we can learn from old ladies to the future of feminism in a turbulent world, Renzetti takes a pointed, witty look at how far we've come - and how far we have to go. If Nellie McClung and Erma Bombeck had an IVF baby, this book would be the result. If they'd lived at the same time. And in the same country. And if IVF had been invented. Well, you get the point.
