“The Voices of Women”
Every month for the last year, Hugh read a new book by a woman novelist. These writers offer compelling insights into their own external and interior lives and distinct perspectives on the wider world around them. Yet their work too often is marginalized in our still male-centric society. Come hear what Hugh learned from immersing himself in the works of such diverse authors as Toni Morrison, Louisa May Alcott, Zora Neale Hurston, Virginia Woolf, Isabel Allende, Octavia Butler, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Ursula K. Le Guin, Geraldine Brooks, Barbara Chase-Riboud, and Kate Quinn.

Hugh taught philosophy and history for twenty-five years in Washington, D. C., after which he transitioned into Ethical Culture Leadership. In April of 2009 he graduated from the Humanist Institute and was certified as an Ethical Culture Leader by the AEU in 2010.
