We will start off reading Burning Girls and Other Stories by Veronica Schanoes (available in hardcover, eBook and audio).

Veronica Schanoes, an associate professor of English at Queens College with an expertise in folklore and fairy tales, crosses borders and genres with stories of fierce women at the margins of society burning their way toward the center. History and fairy tales are re-imagined, re-purposed, and re-mixed, drawing deeply from history (particularly leftist, labor, women's, and Jewish history), folklore, fairy tales, and pop culture.

Be sure to read the Foreword (p.9-13) by prolific and award winning author Jane Yolen, and revisit the original fairy tales that inspired each of Schanoes’s stories (see links below).
