when women write

Do you remember your early reading days? The joy of getting lost in a book, learning to see the world through the eyes of a character or devouring a book because you were learning about a new passion or interest. My friends would always say “if she can’t figure it out, Carolyne’s off to the library/book store to get a book”.

The team at yoUnlimited LOVEs reading and finding new writers and books, almost as much as connecting like minded women together so a yoUnlimited event that featured women writers seemed like a perfect addition to our offerings!  See our featured authors who have already joined us here.

A few times a year, an author will join us at Nourish to share their work and wisdom, and will have their book(s) available for sale.
