Event Details

We’ve heard it all before:

“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.”

“Where there’s a will, there’s a way.”

“When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.”

But anyone who has ever tried to make a big life change knows it can be a bit more complicated— and frightening—than that. How do you get up the nerve and confidence to actually take the leap? No one knows better than the women profiled in this powerful book by actress, activist, and bestselling author Marlo Thomas.

“It Ain’t Over . . . Till It’s Over” introduces us to sixty amazing women who are proving that it’s never too late to live out a dream—to launch a business, travel the world, get a PhD, indulge a creative impulse, make a family recipe famous, escape danger, find love, or fill a void in life with a challenging new experience. Meet a graphic artist who fulfilled a childhood ambition by going to med school at age forty-two; a suburban mom whose innovative snack recipe for her daughter’s lunchbox turned into a multimillion-dollar business; a private-practice psychiatrist who convinced her husband that they should quit their jobs and take off on an exciting, open-ended, cross-country adventure—in a giant bus, no less!; and a middle-aged English teacher who, devastated to discover that her husband was cheating on her, refused to be a victim, filed for divorce, and began the challenging journey of rebuilding her life.

Brimming with anecdotes that will inspire smiles, tears, and—most of all—hope, “It Ain’t Over” speaks to women of all ages with an empowering message: The best is yet to come!

Marlo Thomas is the author of six bestselling books, Free to Be…You and Me, Free to Be…a Family, The Right Words at the Right Time (Volumes 1 and 2), Thanks and Giving: All Year Long, and her memoir, Growing Up Laughing: My Story and the Story of Funny. She has won four Emmys, a Golden Globe, a Grammy, and the Peabody Award, and has been inducted into the Broadcasting Hall of Fame. She lives in New York with her husband, Phil Donahue.
