Tuesdays In March: Liz Smith Reading Series
What a wonderful tribute to LIZ SMITH from the Miranda Theatre.

To celebrate her life and spirit, and in honor of Women’s History month, they launched an Inaugural Reading Series, each Tuesday in March. Get the details.
March 7. Meet “Love Your Age” Author Barbara Hannah Grufferman
Our friend and awesome Tomato, Barbara Hannah Grufferman, is inviting Tomatoes to the Road Runners Club to celebrate the launch of her terrific book, Love Your Age: The Small-Step Solution to a Better, Longer, Happier Life. It could literally change your life. She’ll talk about how starting to run at the age of 50, changed her life (she’s now run five marathons and an ultra-marathon). And while you may never run a marathon, Barbara’s story will inspire you and her book is filled with healthy habits that will help you look, feel, and be your best in a busy, fast-paced world. (P.S., Barbara will be the keynote speaker at our Renewal Summit.) The event is free, but you must register. Get the details.
Women Who Made NY History
March is Women’s History Month and what a great month to honor and pay tribute to some of the women who have history in New York City. Their significant achievements in the arts, politics and urban planning can be celebrated every day throughout the five boroughs. Icons like Billy Holiday, Jackie Kennedy and Dorothy Parker. And women like Alice Austen, a pioneering journalistic photographer, and the first woman on Staten Island to own a car. NYC Go, New York City’s official guide, has a great article on some of these women and where to pay tribute.
