Author Visit & Reading at the Pine Valley Library, “Shaking the Tree : Brazen Short Memoir Volume 2” – January 11, 2020

Two local authors, Nancy “Pants” Johnson (SD) and Marijke McCandless (Alpine) will be reading from from an Amazon bestseller Anthology of Award-winning essays, called “Shaking the Tree: Brazen. Short. Memoir (Vol. 2): Things We Don’t Talk About.” By Marni Freedman.  This event will take place from 1pm to 3pm at the Pine Valley Library (28804 Old Hwy 80, Pine Valley, CA 91962 ) this Saturday, January 11, 2020.

We are excited to introduce the community to not only this anthology but also the incredible San Diego Memoir Writer’s Association and the San Diego Writer’s Festival.


About the Book:

The San Diego Memoir Writers Association is honored to present the second volume of compelling true stories drawn from our annual Memoir Showcase contest. This year’s winning selections address the theme of Things We Don’t Talk About, and our writers bravely answered the call to share the most intimate narratives of their lives.

The authors take on bold issues such as hidden racism, physical and sexual abuse, illicit affairs, the tragic loss of a child or parent, secret family members, and the painfully awkward experiences of adolescent first love. Sometimes hilarious, sometimes terrifying or mysterious, the stories within these pages challenge us to check our assumptions, seek out understanding, and connect with the triumphant bravery it takes to shine a light on our secrets. You can’t make this stuff up.
