Suzanne Braun Levine
Open Road Integrated Media

You Gotta Have Girlfriends – A Post-Fifty Posse is Good For Your Health is the fourth installment of my on-going exploration of women’s lives after fifty – the stage known as Second Adulthood – and my first ebook. The book will be available on April 16th from my digital publisher Open Road Integrated Media, a company co-founded and run by my friend Jane Friedman, the CEO.

The special nature of our friendships with women – Our Circle of Trust – is one of the main themes in all my books, blogs, lectures, and interviews and it is at the core of the on-going story of my generation as we grow, change, age, and discover our authentic selves.
