THIS VENUE IS ON THE PROPERTY OF BROADHOLLOW LIBRARY. We will probably have lunch nearby prior to the show. I will post the time and place for lunch a few days prior to the date. Ellen, the wife of a successful author, has written a book about friends who are spouses of celebrities and what it is like to be married to Somebody Famous. She has invited them to her house on the house at Malibu to let them read advance copies and to break the news to them gently that they are depicted warts and all. All nearly have apoplexy when they read the book because it really does tell all. When the news arrives that the book isto be made into a movie, they change their tune and get excited about which star will play them. RSVP and payment due by 2/01/19 Tickets are $24 for seniors; please pay by paypal or check; my addresses are on our home page under "discussion".
