Each write about her most challenging moment and how she learned to not just endure, but also to win. Memoirist and author Sarah Einstein says of the book: “Fearless: Women's Journeys to Self-Empowerment explores the diverse experiences of women coming into their own with heart, humor, and nuance. These are personal stories, not polemic, and each evinces its own special kind of grace.” Cat will be joined by Fearless contributors Rebecca Kimmons and Ariana Kincaid for the reading.
