As part of our *ongoing* celebration of Women’s History Month, we are delighted to bring you this special edition of the Create33 author series. For women and allies interested in “navigating life with confidence, solidarity and compassion,” and “igniting change, taking control, and succeeding,” this is one conversation you can’t miss! Two incredible local authors and leaders engage and inspire us through the power of story. Mikaela Kiner, in her book Female Firebrands, highlights 13 amazing women and the challenges they have faced and overcome. Rebekah Bastian, in her novel Blaze Your Own Trail, takes us on a path of discovery in a “choose your own journey” format, illuminating there is no *one* right path for anyone, personally or professionally.
