JourneyWoman Webinar Event: Author Lisa See on November 15

Published 3 months ago • 2 min read

Dear JourneyWoman,

Our last book club of 2023 is coming up this Wednesday, November 15 and we're thrilled that best-selling author, Lisa See is joining us to talk about her books, including our November Book of the Month, Lady Tan’s Circle of Women, set in 15th century China.

“We tend to learn history in terms of wars, dates, and the generals, kings and presidents who made the “big” decisions. But if you take one step away from the front line of history, you see women, children, and the elderly. All of those people are participating in history too, only their stories are often ignored as “unimportant.” I feel very honored and privileged that I get to tell those stories. They are important to me as a woman, wife, mother, and now grandmother.” – Lisa See
