Virtual Book Group: The Boys’ Club
Virtual Book discussion followed by a conversation with author Erica Katz.
Alex Vogel, a high achiever with a Harvard Law School degree, accepts a dream job at a prestigious Manhattan law firm and promises her boyfriend that the job won’t change her. But Alex is seduced by the firm’s money, energy, and her cocksure male colleagues. When something happens that reveals the dark reality of the firm, Alex comes to understand the ways women like her are told—explicitly and implicitly—how they need to behave to succeed in the workplace. She can no longer stand by silently—even if doing what’s right means putting everything on the line to expose the shocking truth. The Firm meets #MeToo, and already optioned by Netflix, The Boys’ Club was written pseudonymously by a female lawyer who began her career at a large Manhattan firm.
