If you love Portland-based singer/songwriter/actress/force of nature Storm Large as much as we do, you will be happy to know that she has added “author” to her list of credits. This January 10th, Simon & Schuster will publish Storm Large’s memoir, CRAZY ENOUGH. We can hardly wait!
This book is a rough, raw, and compulsively readable first-person account of how one woman lived with the terror of losing her mind – and lost it, only to find herself. It’s a story few would have the guts to tell so honestly. But honestly, what else can we expect from Storm Large? If you were lucky enough to see her one-woman show called “Crazy Enough”, you know what we mean.
And now here’s our amazing news:
Storm has enthusiastically agreed to spend an intimate evening talking about her life and her book (and signing books) here at Broadway Books. It will be a private event at our cozy little store, open to a limited number of people who sign up by pre-ordering and pre-paying for her book.
The event will be at the store on the evening of Monday, January 2, 2011. We have special permission from the publisher to sell books on this date, which is eight days before the official publication. If you would like to join us for a book, a glass of wine and a schmooze with Storm, here is what to do:
- Call us (503) 284-1726 or come into the store no earlier than Tuesday, December 13 at 10 am.
- Pay us $25 (the price of Storm’s book) for each person who will attend our event.
- We’ll put your name on the list to attend the party, and we’ll give (or mail) you a receipt which will be your ticket to the party.
- Come to the party with your receipt, and we’ll give you a book and an appropriate beverage and you’ll get to meet one of Portland’s most gifted, dynamic, and generous performers. And she’ll sign your book!
We are expecting this event to sell out quickly. Mark your calendars for December 13 and give us a call or come in! We cannot accept orders for this event on our website. Pre-ordering the book through the website does not qualify you for a ticket; you must order the book by phone or in person to obtain a ticket to the event.
What a dynamite way to start the year!
