Stepmothers, from sinister stereotype to contemporary counter-narratives. Campus anti-Semitism in North Carolina, then and now. How boredom in shul was an unlikely career booster. Two daughters report on what they learned from their mothers’ conflicts. Summer fiction to keep you suitably distracted. What does holding a door have to do with gender and power? (Guess again!) And Diane Arbus through a different lens.
Unable to stop sobbing after her mother dies, Newman follows a friend’s “spa spa spa” prescription to understand her mother’s secrets.
Sometimes insights into our relationships come late. As a child, Bat-Ami desperately wanted to be one of her mother’s beloved plants, and now knows she feared being rooted.

The state making news for gender bias in 2016 is staying in character. Seventy-five years ago, anti-Semitism was a preferred prejudice in North Carolina.
What's it like for this thirtysomething Jew raising stepdaughters? Silver tells the girls her own stories, then learns some truths from other stepmothers coming out from under the sinister stereotype.
An unlikely career booster.
