Women on the Move

Amy Bloom, In Love

Hailed as one of the best books of the year by The New York Times Book Review, NPR, Time, Publishers Weekly and The Washington Post, In Love is a powerful tale about the part of life we shy away from discussing: its ending. Yet in Amy Bloom’s insightful and eloquent hand, and with her trademark wit, this memoir about helping your life partner die with dignity is ultimately a riveting tribute to boundary-defying love.

Upon the release of the memoir’s paperback version, we will be joined by social worker, psychotherapist and writer Amy Bloom, Director of the Shapiro Center at Wesleyan University, author of five novels, three collections of short stories and a nonfiction volume about individuals outside the gender binary. She is also creator of Lifetime’s State of Mind.

Women on the Move

A Virtual Series

Friendships. Family. Ethical dilemmas. The tangled intricacies of power. Leading female authors – New York Times bestsellers, Pulitzer Prize winners, Whiting Award winners, National Jewish Book Award finalists – who have tackled those questions in novels and memoirs will join Woman on the Move discuss the inspirations for their characters, what they love about writing and where they expect their imaginations will take them next.

This series is moderated by Zibby Owens, an author and editor whose multimedia empire of a publishing house, magazine, and podcast led New York Magazine to dub her “New York’s Most Powerful Book-fluencer,” Jordana Horn, a journalist at Kveller and Marjorie Shuster, Coordinator of Literary Events at Temple Emanu-El.
