Mujeres en Cambio member Arlene Krasner, will be reading from her book Kosher Sutra, a food memoir. A life-long foodie, Arlene has been “both a recipe tester and a recipe twister.” Throughout her unusual and varied career (including teaching sign language to chimps, composition to college freshman and technical writing to graduate engineering students, running her own business communications company and a stint as a fraternity cook), Arlene has always been “from the first course to last, a writer.” Definitely, a writer with a quirky edge.
Award-winning playwright, screenwriter and cartoonist Mark Saunders will share a excerpt from his “clueless” adventure memoir, Nobody Knows the Spanish I Speak. Mark’s highly successful background includes standup comedy, 30 staged plays, three optioned scripts, several humorous screenplays which “have attracted awards but seem to be allergic to money,” more than 500 published cartoons and writing jokes for Jay Leno.
Our third talented writer, Carol Merchasin, is a “recovering lawyer and partner in a large international law firm, trainer, speaker and author.” She is a full-time resident of San Miguel, living happily, thanks to her husband, two dogs and birds, and a lot of Mexican people. Carol will be reading an essay from her forthcoming book, How it Goes in Mexico, a collection of personal essays celebrating the small, magical, surreal and humorous moments which make up life here in San Miguel.
Just 200 pesos per ticket will ensure a delightful evening sharing humor, fantastic food and fabulous views with friends and members of Mujeres. Importantly, 98 percent of the party proceeds will insure another worthy young woman from the campo the chance for a full life through education. Your participation is a pledge to bring a bright future to a budding nurse, restauranteur, computer specialist, teacher, perhaps even a writer, who will better her life and that of her family and community. Brighten
their future, give promise to these exceptional women. Join us for “Wine and Proses,” an evening to ‘vie’ for.
