Head on out to Spark Arts in the Castro, on Friday March 16th, starting at 7 p.m. for a Charity/Book launch party hosted by Heather Jacks. Jacks is an award winning author, Disco Loving Wine Ninja, diehard SF Giants fan and Saint with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.
Jacks’ new book, My Headdress Is On Fire….stories from a White Girl growing up on & off Indian Land…is a series of deliciously skewed essays that travel the world from Indian Land to the Australian Outback, single parenting to the Empty Nest. Jacks' "full powers of smart wit are engaged” as she unearths stories about an Indian Chief, Bozo the Clown, Kupa Piti and David the Camel, with heart and candor.
We will be serving the award winning Haint Absinthe from Dogwood Distilling, at our FREE liquid art bar. There will also be a photo booth with The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a flash tattoo pop-up chair from Castro Tattoos, appetizers and lots of raffle prizes from local businesses.’
Ten percent of all book proceeds, including sales this at launch, will be donated to Punks with Lunch, a not-for-profit harm reduction group providing food and other necessities to people experiencing homelessness.
The event is free, but attendees are asked to bring a new health or toiletry item donation for Punks with Lunch. Space is limited. The public may RSVP for the event by visiting Eventbrite.
Local dignitaries in attendance will be:
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence
Punks with Lunch Founder, Alejandra Nunca Mas
Members of the media who attend the launch will receive a free, signed copy of the book and a ‘mystery goodie bag’.
