Something That Matters: Life, Love, and Unexpected
Adventures in the Middle of the Journey is the passionate
new collection of personal essays from the Oakland,
California Wednesday Writers group. Forty Bay Area writers
explore midlife women’s second acts and share true tales
about everything from sex, love, and longtime marriage to
divorce and widowhood, from raising and launching children
to redefining work lives and caring for aging parents—
while savoring life’s unpredictable bumps and delights
along the way.
Co-edited by Elizabeth Fishel (click here for bio) and Terri Hinte (click here for terrihinte.com), the book will benefit the new Carol Ann Read Breast Health Center at the Alta Bates Summit Hospital in Oakland.
The group’s first anthology, Wednesday Writers: 10 Years of Writing Women’s Lives, showcases first-person essays about family and identity, love and loss, illness and recovery, and the daily pleasures and surprises of ordinary life. Wednesday Writers is a fundraiser for the University of California San Francisco Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center and became a San Francisco Chronicle local bestseller in 2003.
