The Bitches Are Back, Older & Wiser
Fifteen years ago, "The Bitch in the House" struck a chord among women struggling to balance their lives and careers. It was a collection of remembrances by young, emerging writers and authors. Now those women are in their 40s, 50s and 60s, but they're still bright, funny and insightful. This panel will feature three of the contributors to the collection: Cathi Hanauer, Ann Hood and Kate Christensen.
