The Newport Beach Public Library Foundation presents a Witte Lecture with Hanna Rosin, author of "The End of Men and the Rise of Women."
The #MeToo climate has created a stunning year of revelation and change. Author Hanna Rosin has researched and lectured on this unfolding topic of the male/female dynamic in the workplace and world at large. She is the author of The End of Men and the Rise of Women, a national bestseller that addresses this sensitive topic with deft humor and insightfulness. She is a regular contributor to The Atlantic and Slate where she has authored notable articles including The Overprotected Kid, The Case Against Breastfeeding, The Silicon Valley Suicides, and Murder by Craigslist. Rosin is also the co-host of the acclaimed NPR show, INVISIBILIA, a program about the invisible forces that shape human behavior. Awards from the Education Writers Association and nominations for a National Magazine Award round out her status as a noteworthy author. Rosin has appeared on The Daily Show, The Colbert Report and The Today Show. Ms. Rosin is the mother of a daughter and two sons and is married to David Plotz, CEO of Atlas Obscura. Where better to study gender dynamics than with one’s own family? Be sure to join us for Hanna Rosin’s researched view on a most contemporary topic: how men and women are going to work and live side by side in these hypersensitive times.
