Sisterhood Brunch/Lecture - June 1st at 9:30 am

posted May 9, 2019, 6:17 AM by Alice Hyatt

The Sisterhood of B’ShERT proudly welcomes fellow Brooklynite Fran Hawthorne.  Fran has spent more than three decades writing award-winning nonfiction, including eight books, mainly about consumer activism and business social responsibility. But her first love has always been fiction, and now her debut novel, The Heirs, has been published (Stephen F. Austin State University Press).

In her nonfiction career, her book Ethical Chic: The Inside Story of the Companies We Think We Love (Beacon Press) was named one of the best books of 2012 by Library Journal. In addition, she's been an editor and writer (staff and freelance) at BusinessWeek, Fortune, The New York Times, Newsday, and other newspapers and magazines. Fran also reviews fiction for The New York Journal of Books.  

Fran will talk about how she switched from nonfiction to fiction, why she wrote this particular novel, and the importance today of its themes of the Holocaust and intergenerational ethnic hatreds. Of course she'll also discuss the book itself and read a couple of short excerpts --- and she'll be happy to answer questions.

The Killings of James Garfield and William McKinley


The Sisterhood of B’ShERT proudly welcomes long time B’ShERT member (and Voice of Truth deputy editor), Alan Zarrow.  We all know about Lincoln and some of us lived through the shooting of John F. Kennedy.  What you may not know is that two other presidents fell victim to this same fate.  Please join Alan Zarrow who will explore the near forgotten fatal assaults on two of our Chief Executives, James Garfield and William McKinley.  Open discussion and questions are always welcome.  Alan’s lectures are always fascinating and packed with details you won’t find in history books.  This is a lecture you don’t want to miss!
