"Beginnings in Real Life" KGB Bar fundraiser
Time Out says
"Beginnings in Real Life" is a KGB fundraiser with four female authors: Ada Calhoun, Darcey Steinke, Laurie Gwen Shapiro and Elizabeth Mitchell, who will read from their nonfiction work about fresh starts. There will be a discussion and a Q&A to follow. Donations will support KGB during this pandemic shutdown. Ada Calhoun is the author of the memoir Wedding Toasts I’ll Never Give, the New York City history St. Marks Is Dead, and the NYT bestseller Why We Can't Sleep, out this month in paperback. Laurie Gwen Shapiro's writing has appeared in The New Yorker, New York, The Daily Beast, Lapham’s Quarterly, and Slate. The Stowaway was her best selling first full-length work of nonfiction. Darcey Steinke is the author of Flash Count Diary: A New Story About Menopause. She has also written a memoir Easter Everywhere and five novels: Sister Golden Hair, Milk, Jesus Saves, Suicide Blonde, and Up Through the Water. Elizabeth Mitchell has authored nonfiction books, covering politics, sports and history, including her most recent, Lincoln's Lie: A True Civil War Caper Through Fake News, Wall Street and the White House. Her novella-length work, The Fearless Mrs. Goodwin was a New York Times and Amazon nonfiction best-seller.
