Mystery Writer Sally WeinraubMystery Writer Sally Weinraub
Tuesday, August 23, 3:30 - 5:00pm

A native of Manchester, England, Sally Weinraub came to the US during World War II and married and had four children. Then she went back to school, graduating first in her class at Manhattanville College.  At age 50, at her husband’s urging, she went to Brooklyn Law School, where she made law review and moot court.  Afterward, she worked as an appeals lawyer for some thirty years. Then Sally retired and began writing mystery novels. She was unable to get an agent or publisher for her first book, but she kept on writing. This year, just as she was celebrating her own 95th birthday, Sally published four mystery novels featuring British-born sleuth Emily Lewis. Emily is an appeals lawyer whose relentless quests to unmask murderers and free the falsely accused frequently lands her in danger. Her British reserve almost obscures her passionate nature. Sally’s story of indefatigable persistence is highly inspirational. And the books will keep you up way past your bedtime. This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments are served at 3:30; the lecture begins at 4:00pm.
