Rebecca Sive spoke about her book, Every Day is Election Day, at Politics & Prose on Tuesday, August 27, 2013.

With expert guidance and abundant resources, this practical and inspirational guide is for women at all stages of life who want to seek and win public leadership and public office at any level. According to research, women considering leadership positions or running for elected office are more inhibited than men by family concerns and by a lack of confidence, and speaking directly to these issues, this book offers pragmatic advice and strategies for women’s daily lives as advocates, candidates, and powerbrokers and shares the true-life stories, secrets of success, and frank suggestions of women who have led, run, and won. This handy reference teaches women how to surmount public barriers, conquer private fears, and run a winning campaign—be it for a PTA position, board president, U.S. senator, or beyond—with joy, humor, confidence, and no apologies.

WHAT DO WOMEN WANT? by Daniel Bergner

June 20, 2013

Daniel Bergner spoke about his book, What Do Women Want?: Adventures in the Science of Female Desire, at Politics & Prose on Thursday, June 20, 2013.

Expanding on his provocative 2009 New York Times Magazine, cover story, Bergner questions received assumptions about female desire. Are women really more monogamous than men? How do women really feel about casual sex? To find out, Bergner has interviewed a wide range of sexologists, behavioral psychologists, and women of all ages.
