Book Launch: Lisa Taddeo presents Three Women
In conversation with Katie Couric
Reception to follow
Lisa Taddeo’s Three Women is an astonishing work of narrative journalism—reported over eight years—about the sex lives and desires of three “ordinary” American women in small towns across the US. Lina, a homemaker in suburban Indiana, is a decade into a passionless marriage when she embarks on an affair that quickly becomes all-consuming. Sloane, a glamorous restauranteur in the northeast, is married to a man who likes to watch her have sex with other men and women. Maggie, a high school student in North Dakota, begins a relationship with her married English teacher that will have extraordinary consequences for both of them—as well as the community in which they live. Visceral, shocking, and powerful, Three Women is the story of female desire in America. Taddeo presents her book in conversation with journalist and television host Katie Couric, with a wine reception to follow to celebrate the book’s launch.
