Written and Performed by
Carol-Lynn Campbell, Phoebe Carter, Keli Daniels, Ali Deyer, Jacquelyn Levy, Dawn Medina, Kelly Meyersfield, Elizabeth Rubin, Kathleen Rubin, Harriet Schock, Jody Vaclav
It’s Just My Life is a collection of personally written
and shared stories, chronicling profound and poignant
moments that this group of women has faced in their lives.
What may seem extraordinary and overwhelming to some,
just becomes part of the fabric of each life. In It’s Just My Life, each
participant is willing to open up her life – not to be judged, but to share
from the heart defining and life-changing moments.
Wine, refreshments and snacks will be served after the reading
