I was thrilled to be invited to read last month at Vicki Abelson's Women Who Write, which has to be the warmest, most vibrant and most fun room in all of Los Angeles. (Those of you in the area, you can keep up with Vicki and WWW events by connecting with her through Facebook. Her monthly salon must be experienced to be believed!)
It was an honor to share the podium with Vicki (reading from her very entertaining forthcoming novel DON'T JUMP), Sandy Helberg (whose credits are too numerous to list here, but include the Mel Brooks classics High Anxiety, History of the World: Part 1 and Spaceballs) and Dina Kucera, author of the powerful and funny EVERYTHING I NEVER WANTED TO BE.
Here I am reading "Wham, Bam, Mammogram" and wearing an electric-orange sweater that can be filed under "Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time." I hope it gives you a chuckle!
Jim's Journal Is Back!
Beginning this week, Onion founder and generous LJKGW interviewee Scott Dikkers is once again drawing his wildly popular cartoon strip "Jim's Journal." You can read the new strips at GoComics.com and you can enjoy all of the Dikkers cartoon creations at Dikkers Cartoon Company. Welcome back, Jim!
Listen to Your Mother - Los Angeles
It's not too late to make plans to attend the show this Sunday, May 1 in Los Angeles. Did I mention the reception afterward featuring fresh, handmade tortillas? *swoon* You can find all the details and purchase advance tickets here. Hope to see you at the show!
