Women on the Move: A Stettenheim Library Virtual Series
Friendships. Family. Wrenching ethical dilemmas. The tangled intricacies of power. It’s not easy being female!
Three extraordinary new books depict the currents women navigate through these often-treacherous waters. Join us for revealing conversations with their authors about those dilemmas, the challenges of writing and how they are responding to the changing voices of women who refuse to settle. This virtual series is moderated by Zibby Owens, writer and creator of the popular podcast “Moms Don’t Have Time to Read Books,” one of O: The Oprah Magazine’s favorite book podcasts.
This series is sponsored by The Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation Authors’ Series, honoring Theodore and Caroline Newhouse and Susan Newhouse. We are happy to offer these webinars free of charge in these challenging times and hope you enjoy them. Any contribution to support our efforts is appreciated.
