The St. Louis Jewish Book Festival presents Gail Sheehy, author of Daring: My Passages. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at brownpapertickets.com/event/873344.
Always on the cutting edge of social issues, Sheehy reveals the obstacles and opportunities encountered when she dared to blaze a trail in a "man's world." Sheehy walked New York City streets with hookers and pimps to expose violent prostitution; marched with civil rights protesters in Northern Ireland as British paratroopers opened fire; and sought out Egypt's president Anwar Sadat when he was targeted for death after making peace with Israel.
