September 7, 2011 — The latest issue of Iris: A Magazine for Thinking Young Women, published by the University of Virginia Women's Center, is available around Grounds and at the center. The fall issue is packed with essays, advice and stories centered around the theme of "Resilience."
Featured material includes a profile of award-winning filmmaker Meghan Eckman; an essay on the gifts of imperfection by social scientist Brené Brown; an excerpt from Liz Securro's memoir, "Crash Into Me"; and fiction by Hannah Pittard, a 2007 graduate of the College of Arts & Sciences' Creative Writing program.
A reception, co-sponsored by the program, for the new issue will be held Oct. 6, from 5 to 7 p.m., in the Women's Center's conference room, featuring Pittard reading from her critically acclaimed debut novel, "The Fates Will Find Their Way."
