Beckerman Cultural Arts Author Debra Green: "The Convention of Wives"

7:00PM - 8:00PM  

This program will be offered in person and via zoom.

The details in Debra Green's novel draw from her personal and professional lives.  The characters come alive and the story makes one think about how thier actions, family history and genetics affect interpersonal relationships.

Dina and Julia first meet at a surgical convention and bond over frustrations with their husbands' demanding schedules.  Geography, time and growing families make maintaining their friendship very difficult.

One wonders what happened to their friendship and the other has a secret.  Neither of them knows that decisions made by family members decades earlier have set them on a collision course.
