women writers

What started as research for a women’s retreat at church has become a book – a first book for local author Leslie Clay.

  In 2008, Clay was on the committee for the women’s retreat at Broadway Christian Church. That year’s theme was music, and Clay offered to play the piano as women arrived. She wanted to play songs written by women, so she started doing some research.

Soon, she had more than two hours’ worth of material to play. But she didn’t stop there.
