With Glowing Hearts by Jennifer Wynne Webber

Join us for the official Calgary launch of Jennifer Wynne Webber’s With Glowing Hearts: How Ordinary Women Worked Together to Save the World (And Did). Webber, a former actor, will give a lively reading of select scenes from the play.
With Glowing Hearts is the inspiring true story of a group of Canadian miners’ wives who came together in 1941 to fight for better working conditions for their husbands and who, as burgeoning social activists, ended up on a remarkable journey to better the world around them.
Jennifer Wynne Webber is the author of numerous plays including Beside Myself, also published by Scirocco Drama, and White Lies, published in the online literary journal Ryga: A Journal of Provocations. Her play With Glowing Hearts recently won the SATAward for “Outstanding Original Script” (Saskatoon and Area Theatre Awards). Her novel, Defying Gravity, was published by Coteau Books and nominated for three Saskatchewan Book Awards including Book of the Year. In the mid-1990s, Jennifer covered the arts for CBC Television in Calgary and, before that, was the co-host of “Alberta Express,” a popular, award-winning provincial CBC television program.
