Sharsheret’s Book Club: A Conversation with Jessica Queller
March 7, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join us Sunday, March 7, 2021, at 5:00 pm PST (8:00 pm EST) as we get an inside look into Pretty Is What Changes: Impossible Choices, the Breast Cancer Gene, and How I Defied My Destiny, an acclaimed memoir written by the Executive Producer and Showrunner of CW’s Supergirl, Jessica Queller. The book chronicles Jessica’s journey of inheriting the BRCA1 mutation from her mother. Queller, a TIOH member, is a passionate women’s health advocate and has spoken extensively about the BRCA gene mutation on television and radio including “Good Morning America,” “Nightline,” “Tavis Smiley,” and NPR’s “Morning Edition.”
Born and raised in Manhattan, NY, Queller received her BA in English literature from Tufts University. Her first staff writing job was on “Fling,” the series created by Glen Gordon Caron. She went on to write and produce many more TV shows including Felicity, Ed, One Tree Hill, Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl, The Carrie Diaries, Vegas and Blood and Oil. Queller is the recipient of the 2007 Lynne Cohen Spirit Award, the 2008 Val Skinner Hero Award, and the 2015 Get In Touch Foundation’s Woman of Strength Award.
