NVJBF Closing Night: Lihi Lapid - Woman of Valor
Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia
Fairfax, VA
Share this event:

NVJBF Book Lover/Book Club Night.
She was determined to be the best wife, mother, and professional; something had to give.

In trenchant and colorful prose, Lihi Lapid tells a true-life story of women (and men) struggling to live up to expectations (most of all their own): a story about shattered dreams, and about finding the strength to gather up the pieces and learn to smile again. Lapid's best-selling novel starts where most love stories leave off: at the beginning of real life. Woman of Valor follows the lives of two women in their first years of motherhood. One is a fictional character trying to live happily ever after. The second woman is the author herself, who courageously and honestly relates her true-life experiences as a wife, mother, professional, and parent of a special needs child. Interspersed are actual letters from readers of Lapid's popular newspaper column, sharing the most intimate moments of their lives.  

Lihi Lapid is an Israeli author and journalist whose books and weekly newspaper column deal with contemporary women's issues. Prior to becoming a writer, Ms. Lapid was a professional photographer. In addition to her writing, speaking and being a mother of two, she recently helped her husband, Yair Lapid, with his political campaign and run for the Israeli Knesset.

(Fiction, Family, Women) Ticket includes closing night reception (wine and chocolate).  Plus a book signing session with the author.

The Northern Virginia Jewish Book Festival (NVJBF) runs November 2-13 (plus a special event on the 18th). Ten authors visit the JCCNV in Fairfax. Plus family events and a book sale!
