Qian Julie Wang

Women on the Move

Few debut books instantly hit both the New York Times and NPR bestseller lists. And this one was written on an iPhone on the subway while the author commuted to her job as a lawyer!

 But Qian Julie Wang’s Beautiful Country is an exquisitely written memoir about coming of age in the shadows of New York, an undocumented girl focused on moving toward light even while her family fractures under the weight of poverty and invisibility. Timely and passionately, she deftly balances memory against future, love against hunger and joy against despair.

 Join this Yale Law School graduate — now a managing partner at Gottlieb & Wang, where she advocates for education and civil rights — to hear about revealing the most intimate family stories in print, finding her place in America and discovering her personal power.

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.
