Author Event- Goodnight Night Sweats

Please join us Thursday, April 18th for for a reading and signing of Brenda Bowen (Haut Flasch) and Jessie Hartland's (Mina Pauze) Goodnight Night Sweats. This event is free and open to the public!

Tackling the realities of aging (e.g. too much hair in some places, too little in others) while also embracing the joys (hard-won wisdom and the end of periods), Goodnight Night Sweats puts the underrepresented but widely-shared experience of menopause on the page with warmth and good humor. Riffing on the classic children's book Goodnight MoonGoodnight Night Sweats takes on "the change" with big heart and humor. Through playful prose and witty illustrations, Haut Flasch and Mina Pauze explore the trials of menopause (and perimenopause)--hot flashes, mood swings, too much hair some places, too little others. At the same time, they cheer for the freedom that comes with getting older--goodbye, cramps! hello hard-won wisdom!--as they celebrate the fabulousness of women of a certain age.
