That Takes Ovaries!

Posted by bgsuenglish on March 22, 2010

That Takes Ovaries! is a spoken word and open mike event celebrating “bold females and their brazen acts!” Bobbi Ausubel, playwright and contributor to the book That Takes Ovaries, will be the MC. Students will perform dramatic readings from the book and featured storytellers will share their own tales of female strength and triumph. The evening will end with an open mike for audience members to get up and get involved! Golden Ovary awards will be given to all brave women who share their stories!
