Our winter Hearth event will seek to counter some of the misogyny present within the rhetoric of the recent presidential campaign by focusing on the stories of women. Titled “Growing Up Girl,” six local women will share personal stories of growing up female. Proceeds from the event will benefit Stories Alive–an arts-integrated literacy instruction organization in Southern Oregon. Storytellers include Julie Gillis, Teresa Cisneros, Ana Byers, Nancy Linton, and Alicia Hwang. Our December 8th Hearth event will happen from 7 to 9pm at Temple Emek Shalom(1800 E. Main St.) in Ashland, Oregon. This event is open to all ages. Please bring your sons and daughters!
