How would you react if fate offered you a second chance? Most of us don't receive that offer - those brave enough have to make a second start of their own, without fate's help. In fiction and nonfiction, the idea that we get to start it all over again is alluring and gives a writer more than one world to imagine. The writers listed below will be in conversation during this session about women with enough courage to start over.

The author of four critically acclaimed novels and an award-winning non-fiction book, moderator Carol Dawson has written for a number of national and local publications. In addition to teaching creative writing, she is also a painter whose work has been featured in major art magazines and is represented by several galleries across the country. Her latest book is an historical novel set in late seventeenth century Massachusetts.
