Make it a Ladies’ Night Out for Our Annual

Women’s Fiction Night

Thursday, June 23 at 6:30 p.m.

Featuring Ann Leary, Carmen Rita, and Kaitlyn Greenidge

ANN LEARY captivated critics and readers alike with her acclaimed New York Times bestselling novel, The Good House. After receiving rave reviews from The New York Times Book Review, People Magazine and USA Today, among many others, The Good House is currently in development for a feature film starring Oscar-award winning actors Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep.  Now, Leary is back with her much-anticipated new novel, The Children.

"A read-in-one-sitting romp, Leary’s wry and searing satire of affluence and elitism comically yet steadily builds to a sobering and malevolent finale." - Booklist

CARMEN RITA is CEO and founder of Malecon Productions. She is one of the only Latinas on American television to host a daily national news program, CNBC’s On the Money. She is the author (as Carmen Wong Ulrich) of The Real Cost of Living: Making the Best Choices for You, Your Life, and Your Money. She’ll be talking about her new book, Never Too Real. This is her first novel.

“Rita’s debut novel reads a bit like a multicultural edition of Sex and the City…Brimming with smart dialogue and ricocheting plot twists.” - Kirkus Reviews

KAITLYN GREENIDGE received her MFA from Hunter College, where she studied with Nathan Englander and Peter Carey, and was Colson Whitehead's writing assistant as part of the Hertog Research Fellowship. Greenidge was the recipient of the Bernard Cohen Short Story Prize. She was a Bread Loaf scholar, a Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Workspace artist-in-residence, and a Johnson State College visiting emerging writer. Kaitlyn will be talking about her new book, We Love You, Charlie Freeman.

“Greenridge’s wondrous first novel pits the sins of the past against the desire for the future in a multifaceted narrative that challenges concepts of culture and communication.” - Booklist, starred review
