AWW takes place in the picturesque Pioneer Women's Memorial Garden, and welcomes an incredible group of poets, pedants, historians, novelists, biographers, journalists, refugees, feminists, and other courageous souls. In 2017 the idea of borders finds its way through the program; those imagined lines that can so easily change lives, be they between love and hate, boats and planes, power and its abuses, coming-of-age and ultimately life and death.
