Stray City Graphic

WeHo Reads and Book Soup present: Chelsea Johnson in Conversation with Carrie Brownstein (Portlandia, Sleater Kinney) 

Thursday, March 22, 2018, 7pm

625 N. San Vicente Blvd, 90069 (City of West Hollywood's Council Chambers at the West Hollywood Library)

Join Book Soup and the City of West Hollywood's WeHo Reads program for Chelsey Johnson in conversation with Carrie Brownstein (of Portlandia, Sleater Kinney), discussing and signing her debut novel, Stray City

Twenty-four-year-old artist Andrea Morales escaped her Midwestern Catholic childhood--and the closet--to create a home and life for herself within the thriving but insular lesbian underground of Portland, Oregon. But one drunken night, reeling from a bad breakup and a friend's betrayal, she recklessly crosses enemy lines and hooks up with a man. To her utter shock, Andrea soon discovers she's pregnant--and despite the concerns of her astonished circle of gay friends, she decides to have the baby.

A decade later, when her precocious daughter Lucia starts asking questions about the father she's never known, Andrea is forced to reconcile the past she hoped to leave behind with the life she's worked so hard to build.  A thoroughly modern and original anti-romantic comedy, Stray City is an unabashedly entertaining literary debut about the families we're born into and the families we choose, about finding yourself by breaking the rules, and making bad decisions for all the right reasons. 

Tickets: $27.00 (+ tax) (include one copy of Stray City): https://www.eventbrite.com/e/chelsey-johnson-in-conversation-w-carrie-brownstein-discusses-stray-city-tickets-42370971717

An Evening with Tennessee Williams

Wednesday, March 28, 2018, 7 pm - 8 pm

625 N. San Vicente Blvd, 90069 (West Hollywood Library, Second Floor)

The Friends of the West Hollywood Library in collaboration with the West Hollywood Library and the City of West Hollywood’s WeHo Reads program present actor Sebastian Galvez in An Intimate Evening with Tennessee Williams.   Directed by Tony Award-Winning actor Paul Sand, the presentation showcases Tennessee Williams shortly before he meets the love of his life Frank “Frankie” Merlo.  Addressing the audience directly, “Tennessee” shares stories of his life that are so vividly reflected in his work.  We learn of the struggles of his early years, his first successes, the price of his fame and his later years of dissolution and decline. Not above blatant Hollywood gossip, he also shares stories of the stars with whom he worked.  But throughout the evening, the focus is about love.

 Admission is free, RSVP required, 1 RSVP per emailhttps://wehotennesseewilliams.eventbrite.com
