Due to winter weather-related issues, this program has been canceled.

Listen to and honor the Women’s Initiative’s Challenge into Change essay contest participants as we celebrate the power of storytelling as a way towards healing and empowerment. Tova Mirvis (The Book of Separation), will read from her work. Contest participants will be recognized, and the top three award recipients will read from their own work. A book signing follows.

Why should you attend?

These authors–Tova Mirvis and the contest award recipients–will amaze you with their histories, tenacity, and courage. We challenge you to step forward and hear their wonderfully rich voices.

“In this poignant memoir, Mirvis chronicles her decision, at 40, to finally listen to the voice in her head telling her to leave her religion, her marriage, and her family. She explores what it means to truly be yourself, even if it means giving up everything you’ve ever known.”
