Philly Girl

Monday, October 28th – 7pm
Janice Shapiro
a memorial reading of her memoir, Philly Girl

Janice Shapiro lived her life with curiosity, joy, abandon and openheartedness. The 36 vignettes in Philly Girl speak of her deep, personal relationships spanning her early years in Philadelphia through her full and multi-faceted adulthood in San Francisco. With warmth and humor, her stories reveal the woman so many people loved, and the life she embraced passionately until her premature death at 68 from cancer.

Free event. Refreshments will be served.
