Seeing Red - Cheltenham Literature Festival

‘The myths don’t have a clue what to do with women… We need to build our own f**king mythology’, writes Canadian author Sarah Henstra in her bold novel The Red Word, which tackles college fraternity rape culture. Katie Lowe’s The Furies deals with the rage and revenge of a group of teenage schoolgirls in the aftermath of a murder. Together with Sam Baker they discuss writing women’s anger and repurposing Greek mythology to explore the female experience: both its fates and its furies.
