HerStories Fest is here!

HerStories Fest tonight promises an amazing time with wordsmiths, musicians, cuisine, and good ole inspiration! The event benefits the Women’s Center of Greater Lansing. So for those able, please bring your checkbook, penny jar, or other forms of currency to help out an essential community resource. Check out the full program here.

Lisa Sarno is the Benefit Concert emcee! Here’s what Lisa told me about herself:

“Currently a graduate student in Clinical Social Work at MSU, drummer for the band Sometimes Y. I enjoy motorcycle riding, playing music, and talking about politics. Affiliation: Socialist (really!, not like Obama, a real socialist). Role Model: Angela Davis. Fav Color: Blue. Someday I promise to perform one stand-up comedy routine.”

Come enjoy Lisa’s humor tonight!

Chef Cecilia Garcia, former co-owner of Mama Bear’s Cafe, is preparing a vegan and vegetarian buffet. What a menu! Likely with a surprise or two in the works:

  • Mixed green salad
  • Black olive tapenade
  • White bean and basil pate with crostini
  • Goat cheese, caramelized onion, and roasted garlic spread with crackers
  • Gluten free pasta tossed with lemon oil and artichoke hearts, zucchini, and carrot ribbons
  • Baked Roma tomatoes with Parmesan and herbs
