Women On The Move: Susan Isaacs, "Takes One To Know One" & Marilyn Simon Rothstein, "Crazy To Leave You"

REGISTER

Bestselling author Susan Isaacs is no fan of namby-pamby women who look to men for their identities. Rather, as she argued in her classic Brave Dames and Wimpettes: What Women Are Really Doing on Page and Screen, women need heroines who define themselves in the world beyond hearth, home and husbands. And both Isaacs and Marilyn Simon Rothstein create them in fictional worlds that mirror so much of our own lives.

Rothstein’s latest heroine is a 41-year-old woman unceremoniously dumped at the altar who manages to gather her courage, seize control over her destiny and find worthiness in the most unexpected place. Isaac’s latest novel will appear in the spring, a sequel to her Takes One to Know One, the tale of an FBI agent who trades her badge in for marriage and motherhood but finds herself unable to resist the lure of her detective toolkit.

After 25 years running an ad agency, Marilyn Simon Rothstein burst onto the women’s fiction scene with Lift and Separate, which she followed with Husbands and Other Sharp Objects. 

The author of 14 novels, all New York Times bestsellers, Susan Isaacs is also a screenwriter and producer.

 

WOMEN ON THE MOVE

A VIRTUAL SERIES

Searching for the perfect man. Confronting wrenching choices. Finding courage when you think you have none. Motherhood, mystery, hilarious antics, twisted fate.

Nine female authors of both the weighty and the lighthearted fiction we read to match our moods have charted these waters in new novels and short stories. Join us for revealing conversations about being a female writer today, about speaking to the dilemmas we all face and providing us the courage to become more.

This series is moderated by Zibby Owens, creator of the popular podcast Moms Don’t Have Time to Read Books; writer, lawyer and host of Kveller’s podcast Call Your Mother, Jordana Horn; and Marjorie Schuster, Coordinator of Literary Events at The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center.

Covid-19 Policy: 
Proof of Covid-19 vaccination + booster, along with valid photo identification, required for entry. Masks are no longer required but are encouraged and are available to those who request.

Sponsored by:
