Book Signing Saturday, May 3 at 6 North Cafe in Ballwin

I'm so looking forward to joining several St. Louis-area writers with stories in the Not Your Mother's Book: On Being a Mom who will be participating in a "Meet the Author" event and book signing tomorrow, Saturday May 3.

The fun will start and 11 a.m. and last until 1 p.m. at 6 North Cafe, 14438 Clayton Road in Ballwin, MO.

Several of my writing friends will also be there, including NYMB: On Being a Mom editor, Dianna Graveman. 

Other writing friends who will be on hand are: Marcia Gaye, Tammy Goodsell,  Candace Carrabus, and Mary Horner, whose wonderful story, "The Tooth Fairy's Bad Rep," was mentioned on a local radio station the other day.

The true stories in the book range from pregnancy to when the kids leave for college. 

My story, "A Hairy Situation," lands in the early part of the book. It's about an embarrassing situation with my son. 

If you're out and about tomorrow, please stop by and say, "Hi." 

The event is sponsored by 6 North Café 14438 Clayton Road Ballwin, MO 63011 636-527-0400

  1. Congrats to you, Donna, and the other writers, too. I've never heard of 6th North Café but sounds like a great place. (Just FYI, the first link you posted works, but the one at the end, doesn't. Not sure why. Thought I should let you know.)

  2. Donna, thanks for making the announcement! At last count, there will be 10 or 11 of us there, I think, including (last I heard) Camille! Becky, 6 North Cafe is a fabulous place to have a book signing. Maria Maltrudo is very supportive of local authors.

    1. Hi Pat,
      We missed you. Hope you had fun at the party. I love your story about your son's snake. Gave me the shivers while I laughed.

  7. I hope it was a successful event. Those are fun events to get to meet and mingle. Has the recent stormy weather passed you by?
