Temple Emanu-El in Haverhill presents its Fall 2020 Author Mini-Series, a two-part online event featuring authors Anna Solomon and Mimi Lemay.

Solomon discusses her most recent novel, “The Book of V,” Sunday, Oct. 25, 4 p.m. The book traces the stories of three women—Esther, heroine of the Purim story; Vivian, a political wife in Watergate-era Washington, D.C.; and Lily, a wife, mother, and aspiring writer in 2016 Brooklyn—as they overlap and ultimately collide, illuminating how women’s lives have and have not changed over thousands of years.

Lemay speaks Sunday, Nov. 15, 4 p.m., about “What We Will Become.” The book recounts her child’s journey through gender transition and her own transition out of the ultra-Orthodox Judaism in which she was raised, letting these two odysseys of self-discovery speak to one another. Lemay’s telling invites her readers to consider constriction, freedom, and choice, all in the context of a richly rendered and compelling personal narrative. Register at https://bit.ly/TEMimiLemay.

Each event takes place via Zoom and registration is required.
