Online: Erica Abeel with Sheila Weller

Event date: 
07/22/2021 - 7:00pm

 Join Book Culture on Thursday. July 22nd, 2021 at 7pm to celebrate the release of Erica Abeel's newest book, The Commune. Sheila Weller, the author of NYT bestseller Girls Like Us, will join her in conversation. 

The Commune is a comic satire and roman a clef that takes us inside the Hamptons commune populated by the newly liberated women present at the creation of the seminal 1970 Women's March for Equality. The Commune’s pioneering feminists can talk the talk, but find themselves whipsawed between the bold new ideals of the women’s movement and the powerful tug of the past – and therein lies drama.

This event is free and open to the public:
