Upcoming SHOWS! Voices from the Kitchen and Writers with Drinks!

I don't often get to do readings, and rarely still performances of my own writing, so I'm really excited to announce I've got two shows coming up in November and December!
F&B: Voices from the Kitchen Date: November 8
Time: 6pm - 8.30pm
Venue: Brava Theater  2781 24th Street  San Francisco, CA
F&B: Voices from the Kitchen is a twice-yearly storytelling showcase hosted by La Cocina SF, a non-profit incubator that supports women of color in entrepreneurial endeavors within the food and beverage industry.
