Previous Speakers in the 2015 Author Series:

Jane Hawking

December 12, 2015

Jane Hawking • Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen 

In her open, moving and often funny account, Travelling to Infinity, English author Jane Hawking relates the inside story of her extraordinary marriage to Professor Stephen Hawking, one of the most famous and remarkable scientists of our age.  As Stephen’s academic renown soared, his body was collapsing under the assault of a motor neuron disease. Jane writes about her struggle to balance his 24-hour care with the needs of their growing family and reflects on the relationship’s fault lines, exposed by fame and wealth. The result is a book about optimism, love and change that resonates with readers everywhere.

Maria Bello

May 16, 2015

Maria Bello • Whatever, Love is Love: Questioning the Labels We Give Ourselves 

Maria Bello is the author of Whatever…Love is Love: Questioning the Labels We Give Ourselves, her debut novel. Love is Love was inspired by Bello’s essay, “Coming Out as a Modern Family,” published in The New York Times popular Modern Love column. Bello wrote about the moment she told her 12-year-old son she had fallen in love with her best friend, a woman, and described her relief at his easy and immediate acceptance.

“Whatever Mom,” he said. “Love is love.”

Throughout her book, Bello examines the idea of partnership in every woman’s life, and her own. She explores how many different relationships—romantic, platonic, spiritual, familial, educational—helped define her life and encourages women to realize that the only labels we have are the ones we put on ourselves. According to Bello, the best and happiest partnerships are the ones that make your life better, even if they don’t fit the mold of “typical.”

Kate Bolick

November 7, 2015

Kate Bolick • Spinster: Making a Life of One’s Own 

“Whom to marry, and when will it happen—these two questions define every woman’s existence.” So begins Spinster, a revelatory and slyly erudite look at the pleasures and possibilities of remaining single. Using her own experiences as a starting point, journalist and cultural critic Kate Bolick invites us into her carefully considered, passionately lived life, weaving together the past and present to examine why she—along with over 100 million American women, whose ranks keep growing—remains unmarried.
