Sunday of Strong Women 2022 (in-person)

Hear the voices of three strong women with unique ideas to share. Audacious and tenacious, these women will engage, enlighten and entertain.


2022 Authors

Deborah Copaken: ‘Ladyparts’

Did you see “Emily in Paris” on Netflix? What about “Modern Love” on Amazon? Deborah Copaken has written for those shows and wrote the bestselling book “Shutterbabe,” among others. She is a contributing writer at the Atlantic and has been an Emmy award-winning news producer and photojournalist. Her latest book, “Ladyparts,” is about the female body and the body politic of womanhood in America. It’s irreverent and funny, and very serious.


Gillian Laub: ‘Family Matters’

Photographer and filmmaker Gillian Laub spent decades using her camera to explore political, social and psychological conflict, inviting both her subjects and viewers into conversations about reconciliation. In 2016, during the most divisive election in U.S. history, with her family on two sides of the gaping divide, Laub discovered that this conflict was inextricably linked to the complex and loving relationships she had been chronicling in her own family for more than two decades. This book, companion to her current exhibit at ICP, contains those photographs.


Qian Julie Wang: ‘Beautiful Country’

In China she was the daughter of professors. In Brooklyn her family was “illegal.” Qian Julie Wang was 7 when she moved to America, the “Beautiful Country,” where she and her parents found that the roads of New York City were not paved with gold, but with crushing fear and scarcity. Barely surviving, she battled hunger and loneliness at school. A heartrending story of a girl who comes of age in the shadows and never stops seeking the light.
