In today's society, women are under more pressure than ever to meet certain expectations. While they take very different approaches, three books being featured at this year's Stratford Writers Festival examine the ways women see themselves and are seen by others. In Emily Anglin’s darkly humorous collection of stories, characters refashion themselves to fit a new competitive milieu. Andrea Bain's nonfiction Single Girl Problems details how modern single women continue to be perceived as problematic and attempts to change that narrative. And Sarah Selecky's debut novel Radiant Shimmering Light looks at female friendship, the face we show the world online, and letting your own light shine.
