Acclaimed Bay Area writer Anne Lamott will perform at the Mama Monologues in Sausalito. You may know Lamott's book Operating Instructions, a witty take on her son's first year of life. She's written other books on faith and on writing, including Bird by Bird, Some Instructions on Writing and Life, which is a bible for many writers.
The evening also features short, funny monologues by some of the Writing Mamas (check their website for more on them), plus socializing with food and wine. Lamott gets the stage for an hour, sharing book excerpts, stories and answering questions.
The event benefits Jacquelyn Mitchard, another best-selling writer who apparently lost her life savings in what she thought was a conservative investment (but turned out to be a scam). Check out my previous posting where if you buy Mitchard's new novel No Time to Wave Goodbye, you can pick out another of her books for free - and get it signed by the author. The buy one get one free deal is good through Thanksgiving. If you haven't read her books, you've probably heard of her Oprah book club pick The Deep End of the Ocean.
Date night or girls' night out - get it on the calendar! It should be fun.
When: November 14th from 6-9 pm
Where: Church of Christ (Campbell Hall & Garden, 70 Santa Rosa Avenue) Sausalito, CA
