Susan Schorn @ Thousand Waves Spa

This Saturday, June 15, the Book Cellar hosts an off site event at Thousand Waves Spa (1220 W. Belmont Ave.) for Susan Schorn, reading from her martial arts related memoir Smile at Strangers: And Other Lessons in the Art of Living Fearlessly. Author Mark Salzman says, "This is a memoir I'll be thinking and talking about for a long time. To begin with, the voice is unique - trust me, you've never heard anyone talk about coping with fear and anger the way Susan Schorn does. The writing is hilarious at times, dead serious when it needs to be, and always brilliant. I enjoyed this book thoroughly, and I will make sure never to get into a fistfight with its author." Does the venue change mean there will be karate lessons? Show up and find out. 4pm.
