Winter, 2018-19 

Jenny Boylan is the author of 15 books, a Trustee of PEN America, and the Anna Quindlen Writer in Residence at Barnard College of Columbia University.

My column “Men and Women” appears on the opinion page of the New York Times every other Wednesday.

It’s back to New York in January for spring term at Barnard.  Lots of public events in 2019; I’ll post these up on the “Appearances” page.
