erroneous message

Ladies - Please forgive the email you just got about our 2007 White Elephant Exchange. I was asked by a member to remove one of the photos, and when I did so, that action generated emails to everyone. Sorry about that! -Janis

Denver's New Social Secretary

At a very well-attended lunch at Bombay Clay Oven on March 4th, LLL cofounder Bella Stander passed the baton (a handy sunglass case) to new Denver Social Secretary Carleen Brice. Long may she wave!

At the end of March Bella is returning to her native New York. She will reside in a 1950s ranch house, complete with pink-and-black bathroom, in scenic Rhinebeck.

Stay tuned for the first Hudson Valley LLL!

Malicious Parrot Memoir Hits the Shelves

News from Jenny Gardiner:

My memoir, Winging It: A Memoir of Caring for a Vengeful Parrot Who's Determined to Kill Me (Simon & Schuster's Gallery Books) --think David Sedaris meets Marley & Me, with a deadly beak--will appear in bookstores next Tuesday, March 16th.

I'll be speaking and signing at the Virginia Festival of the Book on Sunday at 3 pm at Blue Ridge Mountain Sports at Barracks Road Shopping Center.

(Me, the woman who can't control her pets, along with three people whose professions are all about controlling their pets.)

Feel free to stop by. Thanks!

Laura Brodie's Homeschooling Memoir

We have news from LLLer Laura Brodie, about her latest book:

"My memoir, Love In a Time of Homeschooling, is being published by Harper on April 6, and I'm giving a talk at the Charlottesville Barnes and Noble on Saturday, April 17 at 11:00. Everyone is welcome.

This isn't a standard homeschooling book so much as a mother-daughter memoir that looks at how public school families are using homeschooling to supplement their kids' educations."
