How women communicate [Event]

Two of Washington’s most famous and influential women, author Deborah Tannen and journalist Sally Quinn, will join  together in conversation on a topic of riveting interest: How women communicate—to family members, employers, men, and each other.

Hearing either one of these women would be an exceptional occasion; hearing them converse together, and take your questions, will be truly memorable. Plus, as usual, the best schmooze around before and after. And, a book included in the admission price—which Deborah will remain on site to sign for you.

7:15 AM – 8:15 AM    Breakfast and Networking
8:15 AM – 9:30 AM    Program

Sally Quinn – Columnist, The Washington Post

Sally Quinn is one of the most celebrated, controversial, and famous writers in the history of the Washington Post, where she worked over 30 years. Wife of legendary Post editor Ben Bradlee, Sally revolutionized the Post’s Style Section and riveted the attention of Washington, if not America, week after week for decades. She is now the creator and co-moderator of On Faith, the Post’s online religion forum.

Deborah Tannen – Professor of Linguistics & Author, Georgetown University

Deborah Tannen broke into America’s consciousness in 1990 with her monster best-seller, You Just Don’t Understand: Women and Men in Conversation. The book spent nearly four years on the NY Times bestseller list, eight months as number one, and was translated into 30 languages. She’s followed that up with books that include Talking from 9 to 5: Women and Men at Work; I Only Say This Because I Love You: Talking to Your Parents, Partner, Sibs, and Kids When You’re All Adults; You’re Wearing THAT?: Understanding Mothers and Daughters in Conversation; and her most recent book, You Were Always Mom’s Favorite! Sisters in Conversation Throughout Their Lives.

Angela Styles – Partner, Government Contracts Group, Crowell & Moring
