Who would be the heroine of a Spokane-centric fairy tale? Perhaps she’d be a bike-riding artist; a restaurant waitress; a city councilwoman; a young university student. At a new literary and music event this week, local female writers, artists and musicians present their interpretations of a Lilac City fairy tale. Spearheaded by Spokane author Sharma Shields, the event features readings of new short pieces by several area writers inspired by the theme “Magic is normal.” Local musicians Mama Doll and Liz Rognes also perform, and a panel discussion between recognizable arts community organizers is scheduled to wrap up the evening.
