Rachel Barenbaum

Women on the Move

In 2019, Rachel Barenbaum proved that she didn’t belong in either of her jobs — as a hedge fund manager and a spin instructor— when her debut novel, A Bend in the Stars, took us on a journey across WWI-era Russia with an ambitious young Jewish woman on the verge of becoming one of her country’s few female surgeons, was named a New York Times Summer Reading Selection and a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection.

Now, she returns with Atomic Anna; an epic adventure as three generations of women work together and travel through time to prevent the Chernobyl disaster and right the wrongs of their past.

Women on the Move

A Virtual Series

Temple Emanu-El’s Stettenheim Library is proud to present its fifth edition of Women on the Move, a virtual series with prominent female authors whose work addresses the currents women navigate through the often-treacherous waters of family, friendship and the intricacies of power. Join us for revealing conversations about those dilemmas, the challenges of writing and how the authors respond to the changing voices of women who refuse to settle.

The series is moderated by Zibby Owens, writer and creator of Moms Dont Have Time to Read Books, one of Oprah Magazine’s favorite book podcasts; journalist Jordana Horn, cohost of the Call Your Mother podcast and contributing editor at Kveller; and Marjorie Shuster, Coordinator of Literary Events at Temple Emanu-El.
