Valentines, Schmalentines--Celebrate Come To Your Senses Day!

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day. Heartscandyflowersinappropriatelingerie.  Or lack thereof.

Come to Your Senses Day is February 15th, and could possibly be the most important date in the history of human romantic interaction. The brainchild of writers Liz Dubelman and Barbara Davilman, CYSD events include readings from their new anthology, What Was I Thinking?: 58 Bad Boyfriend Stories at bookstores around the country. 61E+qSYvrGL._SL500_AA240_

My own essay (page 41) isn't about a boyfriend, but an even more intimate relationship--my hair colorist. Ex.

Contributers include Maira Kalman, Francesca Lia Block, Carrie Fisher, Claudia Handler, Rachel Resnick, Bonnie Bruckheimer and a bunch of other top-drawer women writers.

For my money, Patricia Marx has the best essay, but I won't spoil the surprise.

In Los Angeles, join us at 2 pm at the Borders at 1360 Westwood Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90024.
