As of October 16, Gail Collins’ 2:00 p.m. talk is at capacity. Her post-talk book signing is open to book purchasers, however, while supplies last. If you’d like to meet Gail Collins as she signs your copy of No Stopping Us Now, please join us at 3pm.
About the Book: Gail Collins takes us through America’s History - from the colonies, when a woman was considered marriageable if "Civil, and under 50 years of Age," through a long stretch when they were quietly retired to a rocking chair once they had passed their reproductive years, to 68-year-old Hillary Clinton accepting the Democratic presidential nomination. Collins chronicles the lives of our country's most fascinating women, from Sojourner Truth to Mae West to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, as well as many whose names are less well-known but whose impact on American society is still felt today. Don't miss her razor-sharp, insightful social commentary.
About the Author: Gail Collins joined the New York Times in 1995 as a member of the editorial board and later as an op-ed columnist. In 2001 she was appointed editorial page editor—the first woman to hold that post at the Times. In 2007, she stepped down to finish her book When Everything Changed: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1960 to the Present, which became a national bestseller. Collins is also the author of America's Women: 400 Years of Dolls, Drudges, Helpmates, and Heroines; As Texas Goes…; Scorpion Tongues: Gossip, Celebrity, and American Politics; and The Millennium Book, which she coauthored with her husband, Dan Collins. Collins has a master's degree in government from the University of Massachusetts. She has been a member of the Pulitzer Prize Board.
