Our March meeting promises to be a special
gathering as WiVLA member Leah Lax shares the story of her
widely acclaimed memoir Uncovered. An award-winning
author, Lax's book has already been recognized by Redbook Magazine
and Good Housekeeping as one of the 2015 best books by women. As
a young teen, Leah Lax joined the Hasidim, the Jewish
ultra-orthodox, and spent thirty years among them. Uncovered is her memoir of those years–as a closeted lesbian,
wife, and mother of seven. Gloria Steinem has called the book "a
story that millions can recognize told with spirit, courage and
honesty." Lax's published work includes award-winning fiction,
nonfiction, and two major stage productions.
We will meet at the
Printing Museum on March 15 at 5:45pm, as always.
Remember that the parking lot across the street is no longer
