A bit behind here, what with grading and catching upon being behind and so forth. Here is the C-Span video of the LA Times Festival of Books: Women Behind the Power from two weeks ago. It was such a lovely experience, with a fantastic audience and a panel of amazing writers.

Also, what can you say about an event in which people flocked to tents to buy books and hear authors speak except that there is hope for the world!
