FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE —

Hilarious and heartbreaking essays about love, life, families, and food, accompanied by recipes and written by a curated group of kick ass women. To be released just in time for Mother’s Day. Edited by Claire LaZebnik (author of Things I Should Have Known and Overcoming Autism) and Ann Brown (Dr. Strangemom). Contributors include Merrill Markoe (It’s My F-ing Birthday), Jeb Sharp (PRI’s The World), Carolyn Omine (The Simpsons) and Liza Donnelly (The New Yorker).

Recipes include:, Savory Bitch Ramen, Saffron Hot Chocolate and Roasted Opossum and Chicken Soup A La Bachelor.  Accompanying stories make them come alive– A playwright shares  “Warm Cinnamon Rolls for the Broken-Hearted”  that consoled her the night her boyfriend brought home another woman; a wife describes an elaborate meal bartered for forgiveness after she adopts a dog without her husband’s permission.

Writers, illustrators, performers and poets share their stories, memories, struggles, embarrassing moments–and favorite recipes. “SisterWriterEaters is the literary equivalent of a heart-to-heart over a warm slice of coffee cake,” says LaZebnik.   Adds Brown, “We’re human, and we’re hungry.”  SisterWriterEaters is published by Griffith Moon.
