Tessa Hadley

Women on the Move

Tangled webs of marriage and divorce, motherhood and sexual awakening, lovers, friends and siblings juxtaposed against the rhythms of daily life have been Tessa Hadley’s bailiwick through seven novels and three short-story collections. 

Now with Free Love, she turns her keen eye onto the quintessentially conventional London suburban family unexpectedly caught up in the youth revolution of the 1960s and one woman’s awakening to the world and a new version of herself.

Considered one of England’s finest contemporary writers, Tessa Hadley is a former professor of creative writing at Bath Spa University.

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.
