Author Paula Sohl will discuss her book, "Resurrecting Eve: Women of Faith Challenge the Fundamentalist Agenda," written with Roberta Pughe, during Author Night at the Ashland Library.

The talk will be from 7 to 8 p.m. Monday at the library, 410 Siskiyou Blvd., Ashland.

The authors say Eve's bold, self-directed and inquisitive nature is a model for women today who have been negatively affected by oppressive and hierarchical fundamentalism in religion.
