    Join award-winning author, activist and internationally acclaimed speaker Talia Carner for an interesting discussion about her new novel The Third Daughter.

    Fleeing poverty, strife and pogroms of Eastern Europe in the late 1800s and early 1900s, over 150,000 Jewish girls who dreamed of America fell to the false promises of marriages and jobs by members of Zwi Migdal. Instead, this legal traffickers' union that operated with impunity throughout South America for 70 years, forced them into prostitution. Talia Carner will reveal how the cries of these women, also shunned by the Jewish community, forced her to expose the most shameful chapter in Jewish history. Ms. Carner takes on sex trafficking, educating audiences about actions that can be taken today to abolish the horror of modern human enslavement in your own backyard.

    With her new novel, The Third Daughter, Talia Carner continues her mission to save and empower women. She hit the ground running with her first novel Puppet Child followed by China Doll, Jerusalem Maiden and Hotel Moscow. In Talia's thought-provoking lectures she shares her passion for social justice and human rights, domestically and globally. She explores the individual's spirit as it rises over religious, social, economic or political powers.

    Novelist Talia Carner is formerly the publisher of Savvy Woman magazine, a marketing consultant to Fortune 500 companies, and a lecturer at international women's economic forums. She is a committed supporter of global human rights and has spearheaded projects centered on the subjects of the female plight and women's activism. Her five novels have been hailed for exposing society's ills, the latest of which is The Third Daughter (HarperCollins, September 2019.) Set in Buenos Aires in the late 1800s, it is the story of a Jewish girl caught in sex trafficking.

    A Toastmasters' Gold Level speaker, Talia Carner has given approximately 450 keynote speeches and presentations (including over 100 virtual) about the social issues behind her novels to civic, educational and religious organizations. She lives in New York and Florida.
