A Chat with NOW Founder, Sonia Pressman Fuentes (An Insight to Publishing with Xlibris)

Nov. 9, 2006 – As one of the founders of the Second Wave of the women’s movement, Sonia Pressman Fuentes felt she had a responsibility to record the facts of the historic role she played. She was a founder of NOW (National Organization for Women) and FEW (Federally Employed Women) and the first woman attorney in the Office of the General Counsel at the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). She felt a similar responsibility to provide insights into the lives of her parents and herself–immigrants from Nazi Germany who came to the U.S. to escape the Holocaust. The result was Eat First–You Don’t Know What They’ll Give You (The Adventures of an Immigrant Family and Their Feminist Daughter).

Fuentes enjoyed working with Xlibris throughout her publishing process. “It has been excellent,” she said “One of the positive features for me in my relationship with Xlibris was that there has always been one Xlibris official who was my principal contact and to whom I could go with any problems or issues.”

Sonia Pressman Fuentes has a hectic schedule ahead of her. Last month, she moved from Potomac, Maryland, to Sarasota, Florida and on November 29, she’ll be doing a reading from her memoir at a membership luncheon of the National Council of Jewish Women in Boca Raton, Florida. On February 7, 2007, she will be speaking at the Book and Author Luncheon of the Brandeis University Women’s Committee, Greater Sarasota chapter, in Sarasota, Florida on her life as an immigrant, lawyer, feminist, and author.

She is currently negotiating a contract with a playwright, who will adapt Eat First for the stage.
