[VIRTUAL] LitFest: Brooke Baldwin; Huddle: How Women Unlock Their Collective Power

Date: April 7, 2021
Time: 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Brooke Baldwin’s new book HUDDLE: How Women Unlock Their Collective Power (Harper Business/April 6, 2021/$27.99), is a blend of journalism and personal narrative examining how women have come together in a wide variety of times and places, to provide each other with support, empowerment, inspiration, and the strength to solve problems or enact meaningful change. Baldwin crisscrossed the country for two years to research and write this book, revealing how huddling helps women achieve success in the workplace, effect grassroots change, build confidence during girlhood, maintain better physical and mental health, survive racial and gender-based oppression, and weather the COVID-19 pandemic. By speaking with historians and researchers, Baldwin also learned the ways that huddling has often been key to women’s survival over generations.

After more than 20 years in a male-dominated industry, often reporting on the world’s most powerful men, veteran journalist and CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin spent two days back-to-back covering the 2017 presidential inauguration and the historic Women’s March in D.C. The experience changed her perspective and led to the question: what happens when women huddle? Baldwin wanted to learn from women who were forming change movements, or who were supporting each other in the workplace whether it be the courthouse, a Hollywood writer’s room, or on the sports field. But most of all, she wanted to learn what happens when women harness each others’ power by gathering together—either in person or virtually—to huddle.
