Gail Sheehy, author of Passages, a New York Times bestseller, returns with her inspiring memoir—a chronicle of her trials and triumphs as a groundbreaking “girl” journalist in the 1960s, who became one of the premier political profilers of modern times.
Friends of the Port Washington Public Library invite residents to meet Sheehy on Thursday, Oct. 2, at 7:30 p.m., at the Port Washington Public Library.
Candid, insightful, and powerful, Daring: My Passages is the story of the unconventional life of a writer who dared to walk New York City streets with hookers and pimps to expose violent prostitution, to march with civil rights protesters in Northern Ireland as British paratroopers opened fire, and to seek out Egypt’s president Anwar Sadat when he was targeted for death after making peace with Israel.
Always on the cutting edge of social issues, Sheehy reveals the obstacles and opportunities encountered when she blazed a trail in a “man’s world.”
