Saving the World Solo



What do you get when you mix a childhood forged in the boozy-hazed post-war partying of the 50s—replete with Lenny Bruce recitations at age eight—with an "adulthood" as a college-hopping educational film actress, boy-guru disciple, L.A. song-writer, night club comedienne and prison school teaching artist? You get a feeling-centric, language-obsessed Cleveland refugee who has an epiphany and decides to save the world with wild stories, mostly true.

Presentations of this material have been successfully integrated into guest author literary events, service group gatherings, language arts high school programs, state government and university conferences.
