Romanian Women Voices in North America / Ep. 2: Domnica Rădulescu and Mihaela Moscaliuc

Updated: Nov 1, 2020

Women writers dominate the literature written by Romanians in North America. Our literary series, turning the spotlight on this phenomenal wave of creativity, organized in partnership with Denver-based Bucharest Inside the Beltway, brings together the largest group of Romanian-American and Romanian-Canadian women writers we have ever assembled in the cyberspace. The program, co-curated with author and academic Cristina A. Bejan, offers a series of readings full of passion, truth and skill to match a time of tumult and reinvention.

The second episode features poet and academic Mihaela Moscaliuc and novelist and playwright Domnica Rădulescu.
