Celebrate Women's History Month at Sunday of Strong Women 2024 - Get Your Tickets Now!





March is Women's History Month. Kick it off at our annual Sunday of Strong Women event.

This year will feature Lisa Belkin, Marion Nestle and Emi Nietfeld, outstanding authors each with unique ideas to share. You'll be enlightened, inspired and entertained.





Get ready to be captivated by the powerful narratives of three extraordinary women:



Lisa Belkin
Genealogy of a Murder: Four Generations, Three Families, One Fateful Night

This multigenerational tale of three families whose paths collide one summer night in 1960 with the murder of a police officer who has a personal connection to journalist Lisa Belkin. Her research uncovered a big story from the past that touches on some of the biggest issues today. Author of many controversial pieces in the New York Times Magazine, Belkin coined the term The Opt-Out Revolution and created the Life's Work column. Her editors have described her as "the social conscience of our times."




Marion Nestle
Slow Cooked: An Unexpected Life in Food Politics

This memoir charts Marion's Nestle's astonishing rise from bench scientist to the pinnacles of academia, how she overcame the barriers and biases women of her generation faced, and how she found her life's purpose after age fifty. Slow Cooked tells her personal story that is deeply relevant to everyone, but especially to anyone who thinks it might be too late to follow a passion.



Emi Nietfeld
Acceptance: A Memoir

As a homeless teenager writing college essays in her rusty Toyota, Emi Nietfeld was convinced that the Ivy League was the escape from her dysfunctional childhood. She needed to craft the perfect resilience narrative. But the truth was complicated. Emi's mom was a hoarder who had her put on antipsychotics. Her other parent vanished after coming out as trans. And though Emi would go on to graduate from Harvard and become a Google software engineer, she found that success didn't solve all. Acceptance challenges our ideas of what it means to overcome and find contentment on your own terms.



Secure your spot at this very popular annual event. Tickets are available now at $46 for members and $55 for the public. Event includes a delicious lunch. Books will be available for purchase and author signing. All participants will be entered in a raffle to win terrific prizes.
