Hot Flash Fiction: Steamy, Sexy, Super-Short Original Fiction by Women Old Enough to Know Better
Female authors of a certain age -- including a few New York Times bestsellers -- will dazzle on this entertaining evening exploring the many things that get us hot. Yes, that includes sex, but also other passions, from political causes to that farmers’ market cherry pie we can’t live without. Expect to laugh -- and maybe be forced to think. You don’t have to be a woman to attend, but it might help.
Doors open at 7 pm for cocktail hour and custom stylings courtesy of Flutter Eyewear.
Featuring: Faith Adiele, Anne Buelteman reading Kathi Kamen Goldmark, Zoe FitzGerald Carter, Audrey Ferber, Jane Ganahl, Molly Giles, Beth Lisick, Susanne Pari, April Sinclair, Ellen Sussman, Cameron Tuttle
