Hear from world-renowned folklorist Maria Tatar. Her latest work, The Heroine with 1001 Faces, challenges notions of heroism with its male-centric emphasis on achieving glory and immortality.

In conversation with celebrated literary curator Louise Steinman, Tatar shares how heroines wear their curiosity as a badge of honor and how their “mischief making” evidences compassion and concern. Their quests may not take the traditional form of a “hero’s journey,” but they reveal the values of courage, defiance, and, above all, care.
