Was a great evening.  :D

Jen Williams was a delight throughout, so much so that I'm thinking of giving her books a second look.
Anna Stephens provided thoughtfulness regarding representation and hope in grimdark.
Anna Smith Spark covered everything from early civilisation to a feminist reading of the film Krull. I could happily to have listened to that all day. Can also confirm that her writing is even better read aloud than written down.

Yay!
And yes, even if you didn't get into Jen's first series, please try the second because it's amazing, shows great writing growth and it's different enough to appeal to different readers :D
