What’s Happening

Author Marilyn Simon Rothstein will discuss her latest novel, Husbands and Other Sharp Objects at a luncheon as the Simon Family JCC Book Club celebrates its 100th read.

Marilyn Simon Rothstein is the author of Life and Separate, winner of the Star Award, presented by the Women’s Fiction Writers Association for Outstanding Debut. She grew up in New York City, earned a degree in journalism from New York University, began her writing career at Seventeen Magazine, married a man she met in an elevator, and owned an advertising agency for more than 25 years.

Her latest novel, Husbands and Other Sharp Objects is a heartwarming and hilarious novel for anyone who has ever had a family. After a lifetime of marriage, Marcy Hammer is ready to get herself unhitched—just as everyone else in her life is looking for commitment. Her new boyfriend, Jon, wants to get serious, and her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Harvey, is desperate to get back together. When her headstrong daughter announces a secret engagement to Harvey’s attorney, Marcy finds herself planning her daughter’s wedding as she plans her own divorce.

Enjoy lunch with friends and hear about Rothstein’s latest book. A book signing will follow the luncheon. Cost is $12 for lunch, $20 for lunch and a signed book.
