National Jewish Book Award winner Francine Klagsbrun will be at Brandeis for the Boston-area launch of Lioness: Golda Meir and the Nation of Israel (Schocken Books, 2017). Join the author in conversation with Dr. Judith Rosenbaum, executive director of the Jewish Women’s Archive.

Lioness is the definitive biography of the iron-willed leader, chain-smoking political operative and tea-and-cake-serving grandmother who became the fourth prime minister of Israel. Klagsbrun’s superbly researched and masterfully recounted story of Israel’s founding mother gives us a Golda for the ages.

Klagsbrun is the author of more than a dozen books, including The Fourth Commandment: Remember the Sabbath Day and was the editor of the best-selling Free to Be…You and Me. She is a regular columnist for The Jewish Week, a contributing editor to Lilith, and on the editorial board of Hadassah Magazine. Her writing has also appeared in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Newsweek and Ms. Magazine.
