27th Annual Festival of Women Authors
Meet and hear the stories of two outstanding authors.


Megan Stielstra is the author of three collections, most recently The Wrong Way to Save Your Life, winner of the 2017 Book of the Year Award from the Chicago Review of Books. Her work appears in the Best American Essays, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, The Believer, Tin House, and on National Public Radio.

She is a 2020 Shearing Fellow at the Black Mountain Institute in Las Vegas and a 2021 Civic Media Fellow at the Annenberg Innovation Lab at the University of Southern California, and teaches creative nonfiction at Northwestern University.

Meredith May - THE HONEY BUS

Meredith May spent sixteen years at the San Francisco Chronicle, where her narrative reporting won the PEN USA Literary Award for Journalism and was short-listed for the Pulitzer Prize. Her memoir The Honey Bus, about her beekeeping childhood with her grandfather in Big Sur; was sold in eighteen countries and translated into eleven languages.

Meredith is a former professor of journalism and podcasting at Mills College in Oakland, CA. She is a fifth-generation beekeeper, and lives on ten acres in Carmel Valley, where she cares for several beehives. Shes currently working on her next book, Loving Edie, about her golden retriever puppy Edith who has extreme anxiety.
