Dec. 2: “Drinking Diaries: Women Serve Their Stories Straight Up” Reading at Book Passage (Featuring Pam Houston)


Come on, ladies, it’s time to admit it. We all have a drinking story or two, or 20. What about the New Year’s Eve you got so drunk that you made out with the wrong boy and lost your red heels in the bushes next to 7-Eleven? Or the time you gulped down a pint of Jägermeister like it was soda, followed by too many slugs of cheap whiskey, only to end up puking outside the venue while the raddest lineup of the year was just getting started? Enter Caren Osten Gerszberg and Leah Odze Epstein, who created their Drinking Diaries blog as a forum for women to “share, vent, express and discuss their drinking stories without judgment.” Now those stories are available in book form with ‘Drinking Diaries: Women Serve Their Stories Straight Up.’ In a celebration of the book’s release, contributors Joyce Maynard and Pam Houston share their drinking tales on Sunday, Dec. 2, at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. 7pm. Free. 415.927.0960.
