Having recently lost her brother, her son and her husband, it is 87-year-old Josefowitz’s strength, her passion for living life and candor that is truly infectious.
“Living Without the One You Cannot Live Without” (November 2013), is reviewed by Kirkus as one of the most telling books ever written about pre- and post-grief. It is a collection of powerful, gritty, candid and inspiring poems about living and dealing with life after loss.
On April 10, Josefowitz will read from her book and discuss how men and women grieve differently, unveiling new research on the various stages of the grieving process.
Born in Paris, France in 1926, Josefowitz immigrated to the United States with her Russian-born parents in 1939. She earned her master’s degree at 40 and her Ph.D. at age 50.
In 1980, Josefowitz wrote “Paths to Power: A Woman’s Guide from First Job to Top Executive” (Addison Wesley 1980), which quickly became a best-selling guide for women in the workplace.
Josefowitz taught the first college course in the country on women in management. In the mid-1980s, she became one of the first female members of Rotary International in California.
Josefowitz has hosted her own television segment and has appeared regularly on National Public Radio, as well as writing her own nationally syndicated column. Further, she has appeared on the “Larry King Show,” “Sally Jesse Raphael,” and “Dr. Ruth,” to name but a few.
While Josefowitz has written several other best-selling books, her passion is poetry.
