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.

This event launches Bristol Women’s Literature Festival 2018. See below for other events.

Part of Bristol Women’s Literature Festival. The Bristol Women’s Literature Festival is presented in partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas, Watershed and Bristol Women’s Voice.
