Yes Pick of the Week takes place on Saturday….but I want to give a quick mention about Thursday…..Hadiya Finley will be featured at bG Gallery (THURSDAY) and I highly suggest you stop by before the Venice Art Crawl…I LOVEEEE her work…Brilliant…hop on by and check it out.
Pick of the Week takes place this Saturday….Nothing like a group of menopausal women in one room telling jokes….???
Comedy writer Henriette Mantel assembles a star-studded group of child-free contributors in her book “NO KIDDING: WOMEN WRITERS ON BYPASSING PARENTHOOD.”
This Saturday….the book goes viral with the LIVE “No Kidding” Book Reading Performance Party Extravaganza. Gonna be a rollicking extravaganza party/performance/discussion ~13 brilliant, funny women (accomplished stand-up comics and writers) sharing excerpts about their experiences NOT having children. Book signing/schmooze
“No Kidding is funny. I laughed out loud, but I knew with Henriette, there’d be more to it than just laughs. Choosing not to have children is unfathomable to me, making this book all the more fascinating.”
It’s going to be one big party….starting at 7pm. I heard they are shooting a documentary as well. So come early to celebrate with the writers. There will either be a grilled cheese truck or gluten-free, vegan, “child-friendly” appetizers like cupcakes and mac and cheese available from 7-8, during the pre-party schmooze with authors. (But who’s got kids?)
At 8pm, the stand-up comedy/reading starts and will feature many of the fabulous comedians and writers featured in the new book edited by Henriette Mantel.
I am looking forward to the event…come on out all you ladies…and terrified men, we won’t bite….My eggs are sunning in Miami…so I’m really going to enjoy this event!!!
The event takes place on Saturday, June 22nd
