  • Meetings will be interactive so you can ask the authors questions.
  • Book selections will be announced at least a month and a half in advance.

Our First Book Club Event is Tuesday August 25th at 7 PM

The Book Selection: This Sweet Life, How We Lived After Kirby Died

The Three Tomatoes Book Club

Chances are you remember the story that made international headlines about Kirby Brown and two others who died in a sweat lodge on a self-help retreat led by James Arthur Ray who was hailed as a “guru” by celebrities like Oprah and several media news outlets. He ultimately was convicted of negligent homicide but spent only 20 months in prison. He is now back on the “self-help” circuit.

Now Kirby’s mother, Ginny Brown, and her sister, Jean Brown are telling the real story.

Ultimately, this book is our story. When Kirby died, the details of her death were for public consumption and so much of what happened—the criminal investigation, the media and public interest—was beyond us and out of our control. The public story was incomplete. Now, ten years later, we are reclaiming this story for ourselves, showing how it has impacted and changed us.” ~Ginny Brown, mother of Kirby Brown. 

Here are Ginny Brown and Jean Brown reading from their book:

The book is available on Amazon and booksellers everywhere.

To participate in the book club event on August 25th at 7 PM you must signup (no charge) to attend the ZOOM event. SPACE IS LIMITED.

    The tomato behind The Three Tomatoes. Cheryl Benton, aka the “head tomato” is founder and publisher of The Three Tomatoes, a digital lifestyle magazine for “women who aren’t kids”. Having lived and worked for many years in New York City, the land of size zero twenty-somethings, she was truly starting to feel like an invisible woman. She created The Three Tomatoes just for the fun of it as the antidote for invisibility and sent it to 60 friends. Today she has thousands of friends and is chief cheerleader for smart, savvy women who want to live their lives fully at every age and every stage. She is the author of the novel, "Can You See Us Now?" and co-author of a humorous books of quips, "Martini Wisdom." Because she's lived a long time, her full bio won't fit here. If you want the "blah, blah, blah", read more.
