Our feature will be SHERRY GLASER, a supremely gifted spoken
performance artist who is devilishly clever, continually funny,
touching, and politically perceptive. A big hit at the 2008 Northern
California Women's Music Festival, Sherry is the star and author of
Off-Broadway's longest running one-woman show, "Family Secrets." The
show garnered critical acclaim, including L.A's Outer Critic's Circle
Award, South Florida's Carbonell Award for Best Actress, NY Theater
World Award for Best Debut, a Nomination of a Drama Desk Award and
L.A.'s Ovation Award. Simon Schuster has published Sherry's
autobiography based on "Family Secerets." Her latest stage works
include "Oh My Goddess!," and "THE BrEaST OF SHERRY GLASER" and is a
founding member of the Peace activist group, BREASTS NOT BOMBS.

or audience member. Drop in for some laughs and bring your songs,
poems, prose, instruments, voice or any other talent you might have.
