Sandra Tsing Loh, of NPR and KPCC fame, will be discussing the 3 M’s at The Last Bookstore on Monday.  What are the 3 M’s ladies?  Well…menopause, middle-age and motherhood.  Sound familiar tomatoes? While in the midst of Sandra’s mid-life change, she wrote an essay which turned into her memoir “The Madwoman in a Volvo” which then became a stage play. Tomatoes can join the conversation with Sandra as she shares her remarkable journey at The Last Bookstore.

You must RSVP to this cool author presentation gals. It’s a great chance to purchase her book so she can sign your copy.  Variety selected Sandra Tsing Loh as one of America’s 50 most influential comedians. “The Madwoman in the Volvo: My Year of Raging Hormones” was selected as one of The New York Times’ 100 Most Notable Books, and the play version received development support from Sundance Theatre Lab and Ojai Playwrights Conference and now playing at The Pasadena Playhouse.  Don’t forget “The Last Bookstore” is super cool too ladies.

The thought of the best donuts in town all under one roof at the Avalon Hollywood has driven me to distraction fellow sugar lovers!  Time Out is celebrating this lusciously delicious fried treat with samplings of different varieties from an array of restaurants, bakeries and donut shops.  Oh my I wish I had a donut …glazed…I want a glazed donut right now!
