Dorothy, a publishing project set out in 2010 to publish works of fiction by women, pairing books from different aesthetic traditions to highlight the variety of narrative art being produced by contemporary women writers. 2015 marks Dorothy's fifth year and tenth title: time to step back and consider how the project has taken shape and to celebrate its books and authors. Dorothy's founder will talk about the project, while its authors will read from and discuss their work.
