Xlibris self-published author (as well as lawyer and speaker) Sonia Pressman Fuentes was the first woman attorney in the General Counsel’s Office at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and a founder of the National Organization for Women (NOW). In 1996, she received the Veteran Feminists of America Medal of Honor.
Xlibris is pleased to announce that Sonia appears in the new film, Whiskey and Apple Pie, which also features Mickey Rooney and Tipi Hedren. It was written and directed by Jamie Spooner, and is available from Amazon.com.
Amazon’s editorial review for the film follows:
How often have you said to yourself, “If I knew 20 years ago what I know today …”? Imagine what goes through the mind of an 80 or 100 year old when they think, “If I knew 60 or 80 years ago what I know today…”
Whiskey & Apple Pie captures these insights, and the wisdom that can only be learned from experiencing many years of life on this planet. Watching Whiskey & Apple Pie won’t make you wise, but it will present to you inspirational quotes and nuggets of wisdom which these elders have culminated from their own life experiences. We invite you to ponder these messages to help develop your own truths. Imagine using these new insights to get the most quality out of the rest of your life.
Abraham Lincoln once said, “In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” Whiskey & Apple Pie is a thought-provoking and heartwarming “feel good” documentary that brings into focus the wisdom of our older generation. In this award-winning documentary, two forty something women take a journey across America to capture the stories of men and women over the age of seventy-five. The film includes interviews with both men and women who share their wisdom, their humor, their joy and their passion.
Whiskey & Apple Pie brings to light questions about the choices we make in life and, in some cases, the recipe for living a better life. Whiskey & Apple Pie is a delicious journey for every generation to enjoy!
Sonia’s book, Eat First—You Don’t Know What They’ll Give You, The Adventures of an Immigrant Family and Their Feminist Daughter, is available in the Xlibris Bookstore.
