      "The Book of Hannah" Author Event

      ABOUT THE BOOKWhen an infertile woman finds herself pregnant, it’s a cause for celebration. When that woman is approaching her 55th birthday, it’s practically a miracle! Hannah Murrow certainly thinks so in the wake of her (very) belated blessing. But she is disappointed that no one — not her husband, eager for retirement; not her longtime friends from her infertility support group; and least of all her moody, difficult adopted daughter Natty — seems to share her excitement. That all changes when Natty and her boyfriend turn Hannah’s improbable pregnancy into a marketing opportunity, and Hannah into an unlikely social media celebrity. In the process, Hannah reconsiders what it means to be a mother, both to the child she’s expecting and to the one she has already raised.ABOUT THE AUTHOREllen Gardner Gelerman was born and raised on Long Island, New York, and spent much of her adult life there. She received her BA in English from Indiana University, leading to a lifelong love of English literature as well as a 20-year career as an advertising copywriter. Though she is retired from her formal career, writing is still her passion. Ellen teaches Zumba for the fun of it and works for progressive causes because the times demand it. She and her husband, who have two grown children, currently live in Michigan with their Labrador retriever. This is her first book. PLEASE JOIN FEMS FOR DEMS, THE MICHIGAN DEMOCRATIC JEWISH CAUCUS, AND ENCOMPASS CAMPAIGN MANAGEMENT FOR AN AUTHOR EVENT, READING AND BOOK SIGNING WITH A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT PLANNED PARENTHOOD OF MICHIGAN.
