This might be the most important time for me personally to attend an event like this.Seattle University’s annual community festival dedicated to topics surrounding the human quest for meaning and the characteristics of an ethical and well-lived life returns this February. Hosted on the university’s campus, Search for Meaning draws more than 50 nationally and internationally acclaimed authors and artists for an interactive, introspective experience. Authors include 24 award winners, four New York Times bestsellers, and one Pulitzer Prize winner.

Description of Presentation: Teenage girlhood is special territory, a metaphorical dark woods through which every girl must walk. If the editors of the poetry anthology Courage: Daring Poems for Gutsy Girls (2014) could give girls one charm to tuck into their pockets, it would be courage. Poet and young adult author Karen Finneyfrock will share poems from the collection and thoughts on how women and girls can build courage and encourage one another.
