“Women Who Launch: Women Who Shattered Glass Ceilings” profiles the women who created the Girl Scouts, Mother's Day, Thanksgiving, SPANX, the Women’s March among other notable achievements.

Wagman-Geller joins Midday Edition on Wednesday to discuss her new book.

Wagman-Geller will join other local authors and artists at a Women in the Arts event on Sunday at the Ocean Hills Country Club in Oceanside. Admission is $30 and goes towards scholarship programs for women to further their education.
