Discussion and Book Signing at Moore College of Art & Design with Author Rebecca Traister
Rebecca Traister, the author of Big Girls Don’t Cry: The Election that Changed Everything for American Women, will be having a discussion session and then signing copies of her book on March 15, 2012 at the Moore College of Art & Design.
Big Girls Don’t Cry: The Election that Changed Everything for American Women, is “Traister’s electrifying, incisive and highly entertaining first book, tells a terrific story and makes sense of a moment in American history that changed the country’s narrative in ways that no one anticipated.”
Traister is also a senior writer for Salon, where she covered the 2008 presidential campaign from a feminist perspective. She has also written for Elle, The Nation, the New York Observer, Vogue and the New York Times, and other publications. Although she now lives in New York, she’s a native of Glenside.
Women’s Way will be presenting Traister with The Ernesta Drinker Ballard Book Prize during this event. The prize is given out each year to an author who has “made a significant contribution to furthering the dialogue about issues impacting women and girls.”
The discussion and award ceremony will begin at 6:00 p.m., with a celebration reception and book signing to begin at 7:00 p.m. The entire event is free, courtesy of the Hamilton Family Foundation.
