Hester Kaplan
  Michael Stein    Dale Stanten

The Providence-based husband/wife team, Hester Kaplan and Michael Stein, MD, will present a unique program. Each author will select and read passages from the others’ books and will discuss their choices with the audience. What it is like to have two authors in the same house? Hester and Michael edit each other’s work; they have learned to be brutally honest without being hurtful. Both have won numerous literary awards. 

Hester’s newest novel is The Tell, a story of marriage, relationships, compulsion, and culture; Michael’s is The Rape of the Muse, a novel based on a true artwork rivalry and courtroom drama.

Boston-based Dale Stanten has written a memoir of her childhood, The Hooker’s Daughter — A Boston Family’s Saga. Reviewer Katie Hale writes, “The book is a memoir of Dale Winik (and her sister Rowena) and their childhood of being in the shadow  of their mother, who literally turned tricks in their tiny apartment to make ends meet and to provide for her own lavish lifestyle….There are no flowery descriptions, no erotic adventures — it is pure and simple ‘this is what happened and here is how it affected me.’”
