THE THEME OF THE NIGHT waS “NEW YEAR, NEW YOU: TALES OF REINVENTION AND RENEWAL”
we sold out! thank you!
It’s a New Year, and so this month we’re asking our superstar performers to tell us a story about reinvention and renewal. We’re all constantly growing and changing, whether we’re Team 20s or Team 90s. Maybe our storytellers will tell us about a new phase of life or a new identity. A haircut or new look or new ‘tude that changed the game. Maybe they'll dive deep or maybe they'll just make us laugh. Whatever they choose to share, this January, we’ll be keeping you warm with inspiring and insightful stories from ladies of all ages.

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.
