May Queens Hit Brooklyn 4 Days Early

By Neal Comment


The May Queen editor Andrea Richesin (far left) introduces eight contributors to the anthology about women’s life discoveries as they turn 30 and live through the subsequent decade at a reading in Brooklyn indie Book Court. From left: Richesin, Louise Jarvis Flynn, Heather Juergensen, Ayun Halliday, Jennifer Baumgardner, Heather Chaplin, Sara Woster, Kim Askew, and Ivy Meeropol.

Richesin and Askew are also co-editing 3 Things Before 40, a blog where various contributors are supposed to be discussing their eponymous ambitions, but right now it’s primarily an engaging tour diary. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
