Readings from the book "Love, Loss and What I Wore," written by the late Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron will be presented by the B'nai Emunah Sisterhood beginning at 7 p.m. Feb. 28 at the synagogue at 17th Street and Peoria Avenue.
The book contains many funny and powerful monologues about women, clothes and memories. Guest readers will include Connie Cronley, Teresa Miller and Glenda Silvey.
Connie Cronley is the author of two books of essays as well as having worked in newspaper, television, advertising and public relations. She is currently the executive director of Iron Gate, a downtown soup kitchen that feeds the hungry and homeless of Tulsa. She has won numerous awards for print and television writing but says the highest honor was having an Oklahoma City restaurant name a hamburger in her honor.
Teresa Miller is the founder of the Oklahoma Center for Poets and Writers. She also teaches creative writing at Oklahoma State University. Miller is the author of the novels "Remnants of Glory," "Family Correspondence" and her latest book, "Means of Transit," which she calls "a slightly embellished memoir."
Glenda Silvey is familiar to many from her years as a midday newscaster at KOTV, channel 6. She is currently a public affairs specialist in the University Relations department at OU-Tulsa. During her broadcast career, Silvey received numerous awards for her feature and news reporting. She was named the best TV reporter by the Tulsa chapter of American Women in Radio and Television. She is also the recipient of the Newsmaker Award from the Tulsa Chapter of Women in Communications.
March 2013 has been proclaimed as Women's History Month, and the readings will cover women's topics including prom dresses, mothers and why many women wear only black.
This event is open to the public and will be followed by a dessert reception. Admission is $10 at the door.
RSVPs can be made to Jennifer Airey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
