Women on the Move

Allegra Goodman, Sam

What self do you want to be in the face of who you are expected to be? How do you maintain the belief in yourself that you had as a child? Where can you find a place, you feel you truly belong? The beautiful ode to girlhood, Sam, wrestles with those universal questions in a story about a girl caught between a father she loves who is rarely around, a mother pushing her to plan for a secure future and her own penchant for unconventionality.

After writing – and illustrating – her first novel at the age of seven, Allegra Goodman has gone on to author seven novels and two collections of short stories. She has received a Whiting Award in Fiction, the Salon Award for Fiction, and a fellowship from the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study.

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.
