Author Event – The Super Ladies: A Novel
Book by Susan Petrone
For three middle-aged women in the suburbs of Cleveland, the issues seemed compelling but relatively conventional: sending a child off to college, dealing with a marriage gone stale, feeling “invisible.” But changes were coming . . . and not the predictable ones. Because Margie, Katherine, and Abra are feeling a new kind of power inside of them literally. Of all the things they thought they might have to contend with as they got older, not one of them considered they’d be exploding a few gender roles by becoming superheroes. At once a delightful and surprising adventure and a thoughtful examination of a woman’s changing role through life’s passages, The Super Ladies is larger-than-life fiction at its very best. Susan Petrone is the author of one previous novel and several shorter works of fiction. Petrone is immersed in all things Cleveland as one of the co-founders of Literary Cleveland and co-owner of a Cleveland Indians blog.
