Online Author Talk January 10 at 5:30 pm

The Poisoned Table, “historical novel” written by AAUW member Diane Michael Cantor is based on the writings of renowned British Actress Fanny Kemble and her life in 19th century England and the American South. The Poisoned Table portrays a passionate rivalry between fictional actress Isàbel Graves and real-life Shakespearean stage sensation Kemble. A tale of ambition, romance, and betrayal, the novel traces their unconnected adventures and acting careers in the Old and New Worlds, as well as their introduction to the horrors of American slavery. Kemble was an ardent abolitionist who penned Journal of a Residence on a Georgian Plantation in 1838-1839 which is sometimes credited with dissuading Britain from aiding the Confederacy.

Finding Time: The Economics of Work-Life Conflict Book Discussion

Come learn about the issues facing working women today! Join AAUW’s Gloria Blackwell, Vice President of Fellowships and Grants, on October 20th at 7:30pm ET as she talks to former AAUW American Fellow Heather Boushey about her new book, Finding Time: The Economics of Work-Life Conflict, which was hailed by Vogue as “the feminist econ book you never knew you needed.” Boushey, the executive director of the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, will use her economist’s lens to make the case for why earned sick leave, paid family and medical leave, affordable child care, and flexible schedules – all key AAUW policy priorities – will improve work-life balance, benefit the economy and families, and provide businesses with better-quality employees. She’s been hailed as one of the “most vibrant voices in the field” by the New York Times, so you won’t want to miss this!
