THE THEME OF THE NIGHT IS “THE TIME I STEPPED UP”

TICKETS ON SALE SOON!

Sometimes, you just gotta step up. This month, we’re asking our superstar performers to tell us about a time they did just that. Found their voice. Said “no”. Said “yes”. Wrestled a metaphorical alligator, or a literal one. Life throws us a lot of curveballs, and this April, you’ll hear about a time our storytellers dodged one: or better yet, caught it, and threw it back. You can expect our usual blend of heart-warming and hilarious, raw and real stories from ladies of all ages.

This month we have a special guest host, Janice Maffei. Maffei is a playwright, storyteller, and entrepreneur who presented at Generation Women’s inaugural show on the topic “The First Time I Said No,” later recognized as a “Best of GW.”  Her writing has been published in The Southampton Review, The Paterson Literary Review and HowlRound. Her newest project, Reclaim Plan A™, sparks people to thread their dreams in the day to day. She’s a co-founder of VisionFirst helping teams think forward, create change and get results. 

Generation Women is a cross-generational storytelling night in New York City. Each month, five women of note read an original piece on a theme. Of those women, one is in her 20s, her 30s, her 40s, her 50s, her 60s, and her 70s+. Generation Women celebrates and amplifies women’s voices and creativity. Our diverse line-ups will make you laugh, cry, and think. We’re a unique, intimate female literary salon that brings together women of all ages.
