I haven't seen these writers perform but I've heard of how great they are.Come out, support a local business and local talent. Again, it's a great way to support independent bookstores. When host/AMAZING writer Mk Chavez told me the theme is Formation, I couldn't turn down the invitation to read.

The show focuses on the personal and business lives of Marty Kaan (Don Cheadle), a manipulative, immoral, driven and cold management consultant.

Originally, Marty was a highly successful partner at consultancy firm Galweather Stearn, where he headed up a pod consisting of engagement manager Jeannie van der Hooven (Kristen Bell) and associates Clyde Oberholdt (Ben Schwartz) and Doug Guggenheim (Josh Lawson).

He later leaves this position to head up his own firm, Kaan & Associates.

This past weekend I began my birthday celebrations with friends and powerful womanist/feminist prose.

It was truly a blessing to perform at Beast Crawl, one of the largest literary festivals in Oakland.

Thank you to Liminal for inviting me to join their troupe. Each of us shared our stories of our experience with femininity. When I get the video I will post and share with you. If you missed my Beast Crawl performance, there's more to come.

The spot was small, many were standing but people stayed. It was truly an honor to read with such passionate, strong and talented women. This Wednesday, July 20th I'm reading at Pegasus Books in Berkeley for the monthly Lyrics and Dirges.

Then on Thursday night I take on the challenge of a story slam at Books Inc. This is their first story slam where they challenge writers not to use notes.

The show, which premiered on Showtime on January 8, 2012, is based on the book House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Then Tell You the Time, written by Martin Kihn, a former consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton.
