Acclaimed women take to the stage in response to Trump’s famous criticism

At 23, Viola Di Grado won Italy's prestigious Premio Campiello Opera Prima for her first novel 70% Acrylic 30% Wool, and since then she’s been compared to Angela Carter for her original storytelling. Alongside other Writers’ Festival favourites – Montreal-born writer Durga Chew-Bose, Brit Bennett (The Mothers), lauded Australian writer Anita Heiss, Nadja Spiegelman (I'm Supposed to Protect You from All This) and Chris Kraus (I Love Dick) – Di Grado will live up to the term ‘nasty woman’ – a phrase that has become a battle cry for women in the age of Trump. Host Sophie Black will guide the talk that’ll cover cautionary tales, life lessons, wisdom and good advice.
