In this special anthology, we examine how some women writers create art that encourages community and connections across boundaries. Former Santa Fe Poet Laureate Valerie Martinez talks about her work with the nonprofit community organization, Littleglobe, and describes some of the struggles of women across the border in Juarez, Mexico. Iranian memoirist, Azar Nafisi, talks about the women in Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books, and novelist Lisa See shares stories from Peony in Love, about Chinese women writers of the 17th century.
