Laura Lippman

Women on the Move

Imagine dealing with a mother who thinks that being an everyday housewife is a perfect cover for criminal activity.

Trying to resist the temptation of going through your husband’s secret cell phone.

Attempting a playful diversion with your partner and confronting expected consequences.

Fortunately, readers don’t have to do the imagining because the New York Times bestselling author Laura Lippman has plenty of imagination — and a fondness for fierce female characters dealing with those dilemmas.

That flare is on suspenseful display in her new collection of short fiction, Seasonal Work. Deception, murder, dangerous games and love gone wrong. What could be more delicious on a midwinter day than hearing from Lippman about the sources of her boundless ingenuity?

Best known for her novels set in Baltimore featuring reporter turned private investigator Tess Monaghan, Lippman is one of America’s top crime writers.

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.
