2015 Voices Keynote Speaker
Bestselling Author Delia Ephron
DELIA EPHRON is a bestselling author, screenwriter, journalist, and playwright. She is a frequent Op Ed contributor to The New York Times. Her most recent book, Sister Mother Husband Dog (etc.), a memoir, was published last fall. In The New York Times Book Review, Elinor Lipman wrote, “The book builds in gravity and heft to finish gorgeously… Sister Mother Husband Dog is a valentine, sometimes frilly but more memorably about love, loss, and all that is irreplaceable. “
Her career began when she wrote a bestselling book of humor called How to Eat Like a Child and other lessons in not being a grownup, which became a television special and theater piece, which is performed all over the US and Canada. She then became a contributor to New York Magazine and continued writing books of humor and essays about modern life. Eventually she became a screenwriter (as well as a producer), usually collaborating with sister Nora Ephron on many movies including You’ve Got Mail, Michael, and Hanging Up (based on her novel). She also wrote The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Her original screenplay, Sammy, will begin production this spring. Based on her experience making movies, Ephron has written and spoken about the importance of collaboration in work and life.
Throughout her movie career she continued to write books -- novels for adults (her most recent is The Lion Is In), teens, and children. Her journalism has appeared in Vogue, Oprah and More Magazines, as well as the Wall Street Journal and, most regularly, The New York Times.
She collaborated with her sister Nora Ephron on the play, Love, Loss and What I Wore, which played for two years off-Broadway and has been performed in cities around the world, including Paris, Rio, and Sydney.
Delia Ephron is the daughter of screenwriters and one of four sisters, all of whom became writers.
