Karen Karbo with Jennie Shortridge

Hard to believe in 2018 that many women still have to choose between being true to themselves or being accepted and loved. Karen Karbo’s In Praise of Difficult Women: Life Lessons from 29 Heroines Who Dared to Break the Rules (National Geographic) celebrates the lives of 29 “difficult” women (including Carrie Fisher, Laverne Cox, Elizabeth Warren, Edie Sedgwick and J.K. Rowling)... who refused to choose. Tonight Seattle writer Jennie Shortridge interviews Karen Karbo about these inspirational women and what they have to teach us about how to live with courage and style. Karen Karbo’s books include The Stuff of Life and The Gospel According to Coco Chanel. She’s joined in conversation this evening with Seattle novelist Jennie Shortridge, most recently author of Love Water Memory.
