Jean Menzies

Goddesses and Heroines

Hay Festival 2024, 

You’ve heard of Pandora’s box and the story of Mulan, but what about Melusine’s curse or the Wawalag Sisters’ travels? The award-winning Dr Jean Menzies, author of Greek Myths, is back with Goddesses and Heroines – a sparkling introduction to key female figures from cultures all over the world. Discover some of the lesser-known stories of legendary women from across the globe, from Japanese goddess of the dawn Ame-no-Uzume to Tuonetar, Finnish queen of the Underworld.
