I will be reading from Woman of Ill Fame along with five other published authors from the same writers group.
Michael Chorost‘s memoir Rebuilt won the 2006 PEN award. Erika Mailman‘s Woman of Ill Fame tells a tale of a Gold Rush prostitute. Joe Quirk‘s Sperm Is from Men, Eggs Are from Women explains why men and women are different. Kemble Scott‘s Soma peeks at the sexual underbelly of SF. Melodie Bowsher‘s My Lost and Found Life chronicles the redemption of an embezzler’s daughter. David Sterry (author of Chicken) has a new memoir forthcoming: Master of Ceremonies, A True story of Love, Murder, and Chippendales.
We’re charging a small fee because this is a fundraiser for the Meridian Gallery, the art gallery that has given us free meeting space for a decade. They run a wonderful afterschool arts program for at-risk teens and we absolutely love them. Their building, however, is GOING CONDO and they’re being evicted, so we’re raising money to help them with the big move.
