Celebration of Women is a partnership with Idea Exchange and the City of Cambridge to celebrate Persons Day and women in our community with author Farah Heron.

Join us for musical performances by Bella Marie and the Blue Sky Singers, a poetry reading by Kathryn Edgecombe, and Kayleigh Platz will be interviewing Farah Heron, author of The Chai Factor. An unapologetic, outspoken feminist, Farah Heron tells stories that reflect the diversity in her own life and explores how women thrive in an uncertain world. Book signing to follow. Book Express will be onsite selling Farah’s book.

During the event, journals will be displayed from the collection 100 Notebook Women. Idea Exchange would like to thank community partners Pat the Dog Theatre Creation and Phidon Pens for bringing in this collection.
