Single State of the Union launch party tonight

April 13th, 2007

Single State of the UnionYou know how I have an essay in a kickass new anthology, Single State of the Union: Single Women Speak Out on Life, Love, and the Pursuit of Happiness? Well, if you don’t, I do. The collection is edited by the hilarious Diane Mapes, and it features uproarious stories by funny/saucy women like Margaret Cho, Laurie Notaro, Lynn Harris, Susan Jane Gilman, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Judy McGuire, and on and on and on.

Well, tonight is the book’s launch party, and I’ll be reading with fellow Seattle singlefunnywomen Litsa Dremousis, Jane Hodges, Dana Rozier, Rachel Toor, and M. Susan Wilson. The details:

Friday, April 13, 7 p.m.

    I happen to stroll into a book store last weekend and on my way out i saw the cover of this book. it looked somewhat interesting so i happened to buy it. I was not looking for a “women’s studies” book, or any answers – i was just curious to see if there were other working women out there like me. Anyway, this book was so great!!

    It helped me understand a lot of things i’ve always been wondering about but could never know an answer to. I don’t necessarily have an answer now that i have read this book, but it provided great insight. it’s nice to know there are other women out there like me.

    Please keep writing!
