The Yolo County Women’s History Month Committee is excited to announce its 2023 celebration honoring Women’s History Month at the Gibson House grounds on March 18, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The theme of this year’s celebration is “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories” recognizing women, past and present, who have been active in all forms of media and storytelling including print, radio, TV, stage, screen, blogs, podcasts, and more.

The timely theme honors women in every community who have devoted their lives and talents to producing art, pursuing truth, and reflecting the human condition decade after decade.

The guest speakers for the event are Winters residents Gloria Lopez, author of An American Paella — a compilation of Spanish immigrant stories, and Corinne Martinez, whose family’s stories are included in the book. They will prepare paella on-site for guests as well as share their experiences and excerpts from the book.

Admission to the program is $20 per person which includes small tasting portions of paella, tapas, and tortillas española.
