Adults are invited to attend Pushing Back: From Circe to #MeToo at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 26, at the Schweitzer Brentwood Branch Library, 2214 Brentwood Blvd.

The stories of Circe, Captain Marvel and the #MeToo movement all revolve around women speaking up and fighting back. Join Missouri State University professors Dr. Erin Kenny, Michael Frizell and Dr. Holly Holladay, as they connect centuries-old powerful female deities, modern American-made superheroines and current movements in the media for a stirring discussion of female power and where we go from here.
