Vulture Insiders Book Club with Rebecca Traister
Wednesday April 6: 7:30PM – 8:30PM
Join the Vulture Insiders, Vulture’s most tuned-in pop-culture obsessives, Vulture books editor Boris Kachka, and writer Rebecca Traister to discuss her book All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation. It’s a nuanced and heroically well-researched look into the history of social change as effected by women looking beyond early heterosexual marriage, and a "singularly triumphant work of women presented in beautiful formation" (Los Angeles Times).
Rebecca Traister is writer at large for New York Magazine and a contributing editor at Elle. A National Magazine Award finalist, she has written about women in politics, media and entertainment from a feminist perspective for The New Republic and Salon and has also contributed to The Nation, The New York Observer, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Vogue, Glamour and Marie Claire. Traister's first book, Big Girls Don't Cry, about women and the 2008 election, was a New York Times Notable Book of 2010 and the winner of the Ernesta Drinker Ballard Book Prize. She lives in New York with her family.
