HowToRob

Ooh-kay, this might light up your quirk-o-meter. But give it a chance! Our speaker Dawn Lawson went from a horrific childhood to a horrific adolescence, yet crossed the wilderness and emerged with wit and intellect intact. She will share her hard-won insights as she introduces her pending memoir, How to Rob a Bank in Drag. Learn how she came up with that brilliant, teasing title, of her wanderings through a wounded landscape, what kept her living, what she learned from life on the gritty side, and maybe even how to rob a bank in drag ... (not kidding, she really did rob banks!) It has all the pithy elements of a good story: an ax-wielding mom, apartment-complex adventure, dogs, ponies, youthful passion, rejection and acceptance at home and school, fear overcome by fast thinking, good and bad people in the substream of urban life, and a bank robber stashing the cash in a full Kool-Aid pitcher. Yeah. Remember to take notes.
