Good morning from the Beach House! All looks bright and welcoming today for public office hours. I'm here from 11 am until 2 pm, so please stop by, and you can also take a tour of the house. The well versed and gracious docents love to share the Marion Davies Guest House history.

We're getting ready for the next public program, Women of Color Fiction Writers Talk Identity "Can you see me now?," takes place on Tuesday, 11/14, 6 pm reception, 6:30 pm program commences. Join established fiction writers Teresa Lo, Thea Monyee, and Desiree Zamorano for an evening where they will read from their work, and join in what looks to be a lively discussion moderated by Dr. Shubha Venugopal, CSUN Africana Studies and literature professor, who is also an accomplished fiction writer. Guests are encouraged to engage in the discussion and to pose questions. 

We'll talk identity in our work, the perceptions around identity in terms of what agents and publishers believe we "should" be writing, and how identity operates in our professional writing lives. Think "self-identity" versus "appointed identity."

Early next week, a profile of each writer will post on the blog for you to learn more about their work prior to 11/14. 

6:00 pm reception; 6:30 pm program commences in the Marion Davies Guest House parlor.
RSVP Event Brite for this free public program.
