Thank you to everyone that joined us Friday, November 20, 2020, for the Beyond the Page virtual event. Special thanks to our sponsors and participants for making this event happen. We celebrated the women and men who made history through the ratification of the 19th Amendment AND acknowledge 21st Century women who have been trailblazers, glass-ceiling breakers, and inspiration for others across Houston.
The keynote speaker for this special 100th Suffrage Anniversary was the exceptionally witty and entertaining Karen Karbo. Karen is featuring her newest novel, “Yeah. No. Not Happening,” a humorous feminist manifesto about learning how to own and appreciate our flaws.
Karen Karbo is the author of 14 award-winning novels, memoirs, and works of nonfiction. Her genre-bending Kick Ass Women series, including the international best seller The Gospel According to Coco Chanel, mingles biography, memoir, philosophy, humor, and self-help to examine how we should live. Her essays, articles, and reviews have appeared in Elle, Vogue, Esquire, Outside, the New Republic, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Review of Books, Salon.com, and other magazines. When not working on her own material, Karen loves to help inspirational outliers tell their stories.
