Best-selling author and award-winning actress Marlo Thomas aims to share a collection of inspiring stories of women living their dreams from her latest book It Ain’t Over…Till It’s Over during a National Press Club Book Rap on May 2, at noon in the NPC's Holeman Lounge. Thomas plans to sign copies of the book following the discussion.

Registration is required. Please click here. Registration is $5 for Press Club members and $10 for the public. The NPC member fee is waived with the pre-order of a book, an option that appears on the ticket form.

It Ain’t Over…Till It’s Over introduces 60 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 medical school at 42; a suburban mom whose innovative snack recipe for her daughter’s lunchbox turned into a multi-million-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; 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.

Thomas is the author of six bestselling books. 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.
