Last week’s Chocolate for Choice was probably the funnest fundraiser I’ve ever attended, and I was lucky enough to be a judge – meaning I had to eat chocolate and chew ponderously, as opposed to the rest of everything which was pretty much just eating as much amazing chocolate as possible, -o-rama. There were volunteers wandering around with trays of milk (cups of whole, 2%, skim, and soy). It was bananas. Good show, NARAL!
Hey, San Francisco! I will be in this (and I’d like to add, it is a special day not only because of this, or because March 8 is International Women’s Day, but also because it will be my BIRTHDAY):
A Show and Tell Presentation
March 8, 8:00pm, Z Space
Smash-hit Australian literary salon Women of Letters returns to the US for the second year running. Co-curated by writers Marieke Hardy and Michaela McGuire, the bestselling events revive the lost art of letter writing. In 2013, Women of Letters staged shows in Los Angeles, Austin, New York and Indonesia to huge acclaim. Their international stages have seen incredible women sharing stories, and this year’s US tour will be no exception. These fabulous women will each be penning and reading ‘A letter to the person who told me the truth.’
