Mother Talk: "What do you do all day"

Update:  Hey, everybody. It's less than a week until our next MotherTalk: a chance to get out of the house, gather with interesting women, and share some wine and goodies. Please help spread the word! Invite a friend and get a chance to win Amy Scheibe's book: WHAT DO YOU DO ALL DAY? If you haven't RSVP'd to the Evite yet, please do; if you haven't received an Evite, email Shari at smacblog [at] gmail [dot] com. It's Wednesday night, October 25, at 7:00 p.m. Hope to see you there. After all, who couldn't use a night out with the girls?

The Mother-Talkin' Mamas are at it again!  The next Mother Talk event is set for October 25th.  Save the date!  Amy Scheibe, author of the hilarious novel "What Do You Do All Day?" wilWhat_do_you_dol be our guest. Amy's novel is a fabulous mix of chick lit with a thread of mystery -- the story of a woman in  the throes of processing her desire to be at home with her children and to have a career.  The novel's heroine, Jennifer Bradley, is a hilarious, sharp-witted feminist and antiquities expert, now at home with her small children.  It's a great read for those looking for a fun novel with thoughtful themes.  Don't miss this opportunity to meet Amy Scheibe, and to get together for wine and treats with other hip Portland mamas!  Send us the address of a friend who wants to be added to the MotherTalk mailing list (with her permission, of course) and we'll put your name in the hat for a drawing to win a free copy of Amy's book!  We hope to see you there.

where and when is the event?

mg - I believe the event will be October 25th. It will likely be in the evening, location tbd. Stay tuned!

I am currently reading this book, and it is quite humorous. She will also be at Annie Bloom's Thursday, October 26, 2006 7:30 PM for those of you who can't make the Mother-Talk event. --Karli

Email me at smacblog [at] gmail [dot] com for an Evite with all the details. (We generally don't post MotherTalk event locations online since they are individuals' addresses, but we'll be sure to get you the info so you can come.)

I understand that Amy is an absolute delight. I'm so excited that she's coming. The last event was so much fun, let's make this another great one! Would love to see all the familiar urbanMama faces and a whole bunch of new ones. The Annie Bloom's reading will be great, and the MotherTalk event provides more time with Amy, and for us all to share some wine and talk about motherhood and life. Two different events, both great fun. Come to one or both! We'd love to see everyone there.

Amy will be reading tonight (Thursday night) at 7:30 at Annie Bloom's Books (7834 SW Capitol Highway) in the Multnomah neighborhood. If you can possibly sneak out for an hour or so to hear her, please do. It'll be well worth it! It was great fun seeing her at last night's fabulous MotherTalk. Wish you all could have been there to meet her!

Hope many mamas were able to catch Amy at one of the readings this week. Just passing on more info from ShariMac:

Also, Portland's very own non-profit feminist bookstore, In Other Words (8 NE Killingsworth St., Portland, 503-232-6003, http://www.inotherwords.org/) has ordered copies of the book in honor of Amy's visit. So if you live in, or find yourself in, northeast Portland, you can stop by and support this amazing, women-friendly and family-friendly business by buying a copy of Amy's book. The publishing world is driven by the consumers; let's make sure the bookstores and publishers know that "mother lit" isn't a trend, and that we will support great writing that is by and for mothers.
