Deanna Fei

Deanna Fei was five-and-a-half months pregnant when she inexplicably went into labor. Minutes later, her tiny baby clung to life inside a glass box. A year after she brought her daughter home from the hospital, the CEO of AOL—her husband's employer—blamed the birth of Fei's daughter for a cut in employee benefits. In Girl in Glass, Fei writes about her daughter, and the media firestorm that ensued after her pregnancy was turned into an example by a tech CEO.

EVENT: Deanna Fei will be in conversation with Susanna Schrobsdorff, Deborah C. Peel, Mia Wechsler Doron, and Robert Marion at The Powerhouse Arena. 37 Main Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201.
