RJF Award Winners Past & Present Read in New York City During Our 25th Anniversary Celebration Week

On Friday, September 13, the 2019 RJF Writers’ Awards winners read in New York University’s Creative Writing Program Reading Series. (Listen to the podcast here.) It was a wonderful opportunity for these women artists to share their work in New York.
