Nava Atlas is best known for her vegetarian and vegan cookbooks. But lately Nava has been focusing on her parallel path as a visual artist and writer, with interests in all things bookish as well as women’s issues. Her limited edition artist’s books are collected by universities and museums around the country, and she’s now working on new projects that focus on women’s lives in history.
Nava was gracious enough to join me on Feisty Side of Fifty Radio to share fascinating stories about women authors of the past: their struggles, their doubts, their courage in the face of great odds, and their ultimate achievements. Her book is called The Literary Ladies’ Guide to the Writing Life: Inspiration and Advice from Celebrated Women Authors Who Paved the Way. Now Nava also has a website and newsletter devoted to honoring the work and lives of these amazing women.
This was a lively discussion, filled with insights and inspiration, and one that truly honored those brave truth-tellers who paved the way for us… the perfect celebration for International Women’s Day. So give yourself the gift of spending 15-minutes to hear what Nava had to say. You won’t want to miss this one!
