Sunday Salon at Swirl Wine Bistro on 10.27.19

On Sunday, October 27, at 4pm, she's having a Happy, Okay? talk at Swirl Wine Bistro. She's going to read some poems from the book, of course, but she will also discuss how you can use writing to overcome anxiety and gain BOSS LEVEL confidence.

Life doesn’t always deal us the perfect hand. But we can still be Happy, Okay?
