Women Honoring Women Book Signing Event At Lakewood Public Library
At first glance, Laura Ponticello and Traci Medford-Rosow have little in common. They’ve each written a book, but their subjects are vastly different. When these two women team up to present their books and inspirational messages to patrons of the Lakewood Public Library on Wednesday, May 3rd, at 7 p.m., the connection between the two may become clearer.
Ponticello has written “Live the Life of your Dreams,” a self-help book designed to empower readers to achieve personal fulfillment. An author, coach, publicist and public speaker, Ponticello interviewed women all over the world to discover what motivates them and came up with “33 Tips for Inspired Living.” Part memoir, part self-help, the book is a collection of healing graces, healthy practices and inspirational words.
Medford-Rosow took her experience as a litigator at Pfizer protecting the company’s biggest asset, the drug Lipitor, and wrote “Inflection Point.” When a small company based in India challenged the patents that protected Lipitor from generic competition in 2003, Medford-Rosow was the head of global patent litigation at Pfizer. This challenge set off a ten-year battle for her legal team that took a toll on her both personally and professionally. “Inflection Point” weaves together the story of the battle over Lipitor and Medford-Rosow’s personal battles in a book that is both a high-stakes legal thriller and a memoir.
Torey Worren of the Lakewood Women’s Club will be in the Main Library Auditorium on May 3rd to introduce the two authors. Ponticello will be the keynote speaker at LWC’s spring fundraiser the following evening at Georgetown Vosh in Lakewood. Join Ponticello and Medford-Ross at the Library to find out how Ponticello helped inspire the writing of “Inflection Point.” Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.
