In this intimate, salon-style experience, likeminded heroines gather to connect with ourselves and each other through literature.
Each stop is at a literary-minded location, a pop-up empowerment party in a cosy and inspiring setting, a space for conversation about what most excites us.
tea party + making friends + self care + empowerment
“Basically, Robinson-Burns is a motivational speaker — but she’s genuine and passionate and kind of nervously nerdy about her job. As a result, she was subtle yet effective in inspiring our small tea party group to root for ourselves like we’re the protagonists in our own awesome novels.” – Beth Spotswood
