DEATH DEMYSTIFIED for the Day of the Dead Authors' Talk and Read

Come join us at the Victory Branch Library on Saturday November 1st from 1pm to 3pm for readings from Demystifying Death, a perfect way to spend a Day of the Dead, by honoring the dead!

Jane Freund of Freundship Press and the Pixie Chicks Writers' Group (of which I am one) have produced Demystifying Death, an anthology of stories about the last great secret sin of our society: death. It happens to all of us. It happens to our friends, families, and pets. We all need to talk about and share our experiences around dying. And yet, still today in America, the subject is often taboo. 

Okay, enough of a rant, and Demystifying Death, with its myriad selection of poems, essays and short stories will provide a welcome opening of death's doors. And what better way to celebrate the Day of the Dead than by sharing stories?

I will be attending and reading from my (true) short story, Traveling Together, about a beloved aunt and cat, and would love to see you too!
