Bristol Women's Literature Festival Launch

  • Spike Island Cafe 133 Cumberland Road Bristol (map)

On Friday 16th March Spike Island will be hosting the Bristol Women's Literature Festival Launch here in Spike Island Cafe

Step back in time to 1920s Paris, where women from across America and Europe came together to form a community of writers, publishers and artists, and act as one another’s muses.

The evening begins with a screening of Greta Schiller’s documentary film Paris was a Woman (1996, 80mins) which explores the lives of these remarkable women, from Gertrude Stein and Colette, to Sylvia Beach and Janet Flanner, followed by short readings of their work.
