Starshine at the SB Writers Conference
This is a great Memoir panel I was on last year at the Writers Conference, with three other authors including the delightfully entertaining Jane Heller. Don't worry--I'm not as anxious as I look in the freeze frame.

The 'Broads & Barrels' book launch bash!
Come raise a glass with Starshine to celebrate her new book, Broad Assumptions. Get your copy signed, sip wine, enjoy Georgia's Smokehouse food truck while fierce DJ Darla Bea waxes spintastic — and enter the "Help Starshine Write Her Column" Contest: You write the first and last lines of a hypothetical column, the crowd votes on a favorite, and our author must write THAT column for the following week's Independent! Glory and a gift basket for the winner.
6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, February 20
Carr Winery, 414 N. Salsipuedes St., Santa Barbara
Help us get a headcount for the party: RSVP on Facebook.
