Museum Co-Founder Jackie Green and Daughter Lauren McAfee Discuss New Release on Women and Legacy

WASHINGTON, May 24, 2018—Jackie Green, co-founder of Museum of the Bible, and her daughter Lauren Green McAfee want women to know that their lives and legacies matter. In Only One Life, Green and McAfee tell the stories of past and present world-changing women and encourage readers to play a unique and irreplaceable role in the story of the world by intentionally investing their time and talents in the people they meet every day. They examine 12 characteristics of legacy through profiling 36 women who have and are leaving remarkable legacies, including biblical figures such as Queen Esther, Ruth, Mary Magdalene and Hannah as well as more modern role models like Rosa Parks, Queen Elizabeth II, Florence Nightingale and Christine Caine.

Green and McAfee will launch their book at Museum of the Bible as part of the museum’s regular speakers series. The hour-long program will be featured on Facebook Live, and a book signing will follow.
