Join us for a light breakfast, author presentation, and book signing with Pnina Lahav!

In this authoritative and empathetic biography, Pnina Lahav re-examines the life of Golda Meir (1898-1978) through a feminist lens, focusing on her recurring role as a woman standing alone among men. The Only Woman in the Room is the first book to contend with Meir’s full identity as a woman, Jew, Zionist leader, and one of the founders of Israel, providing a richer portrait of her persona and legacy. 

Pnina Lahav is emerita professor of law and a member of the Elie Wiesel Center for Judaic Studies at Boston University. She is the author of the award winning Judgment in Jerusalem: Chief Justice Simon Agranat and the Zionist Century. She lives in Brookline, Massachusetts.
