Closing night of the 8th annual Northern Virginia Jewish Book Festival (NVJBF) features Israeli Lihi Lapid, who tells a true-life story of women (and men) struggling to live up to expectations (most of all their own): a story about shattered dreams, and about finding the strength to gather up the pieces and learn to smile again. Woman of Valor follows the lives of two women in their first years of motherhood. One is a fictional character trying to live happily ever after. The second woman is the author herself, who courageously and honestly relates her true-life experiences as a wife, mother, professional, and parent of a special needs child. Lihi is an Israeli author and journalist whose books and weekly newspaper column deal with contemporary women's issues. She recently helped her husband, Yair Lapid, with his political campaign and run for the Israeli Knesset.
