Women in Transition

A book discussion series exploring how women navigate transitions -- from motherhood to growing older to losing loved ones and more.

Whether it’s coming of age, marriage, motherhood, aging, death — transition is a part of every woman’s life.

How we navigate these transitions shapes the stories we tell ourselves and each other.
