Join the Idaho Writers Guild for a Literary Lunch on Tuesday, March 20 with  Guest Author Stacy Dymalski.

Smoky Mountain Pizza, 415 E. Parkcenter Blvd., Boise

11:30 – 1:30, free and open to the public

Stacy Dymalski is a writer, producer and stand-up comic.  Her most recent book is Confessions of a Band Geek Mom. After 36 years of lavish childless living spoiled stand-up comic Stacy Dymalski into believing happy hour was just a normal part of one’s daily commute, she  moved to Utah (to ski everyday, of course) and within a year got pregnant. (Isn’t that what happens to any woman who moves to Utah?) Before she knew it Stacy had two young sons and suddenly sleep won out over midnight comedy shows. Juicy Juice replaced Grey Goose vodka (although they are good mixed). Prada bags gave way to diaper bags. Showers couldn’t last longer than a “Bob the Builder” video. Vacations took a backseat to music lessons, and school band instruments littered the house like empty beer bottles in a college dorm. And for the first 10 years of her sons’ lives Stacy felt compelled to clean up her language (sort of). In between carpools and doing crazy stuff like lobbying for sex education in public schools (so our kids don’t grow up thinking the missionary position involves a bicycle and a doorbell) Stacy has documented her parenting journey in this delightful collection of (sometimes politically incorrect) laugh-out-loud stories that her children are sure to contest once they’re old enough to understand the art of irony and exaggeration.

Feel free to bring along business cards, flyers, or anything else you’d like to share with your fellow writers. Also, we’ll be drawing 3 names to participate in a 3 minute open mic, so get writing! All styles and genres are welcome, as long as the work is original and can be read in under 3 minutes.

Hope to see you on March 20!

Remember, the IWG has a luncheon on the THIRD TUESDAY of each month at Smoky Mountain Pizza on Parkcenter. It’s an opportunity to network with other writers and find out what’s happening in your literary community.
