Saturday, July 9, 2011 || 7pm Book Passage-Corte Madera || 51 Tamal Vista Dr. Corte Madera || www.bookpassage.com Calling all Divas … It’ll be pure fun on Saturday night, so we hope most of you will have it in you to join the colorful characters that will assemble to celebrate The Diva Doctrine with Patricia Volonakis Davis. Patricia will be dishing up advice and discussing the 16 universal principles of Diva-hood. You’ll want to bring your friends just to make sure you are all on the same page. No Diva can do it alone. PATRICIA V. DAVIS’ aim is to leave her spot of the world just a little bit better than it was before she got there. She focuses on that through her writing, teaching, philanthropic work, and the promoting of other people whom she believes have that same goal. Patricia is the author of the award-winning Harlot’s Sauce: A Memoir of Food, Family, Love, Loss and Greece, and The Diva Doctrine: 16 Universal Principles Every Woman Needs to Know. She has been called a “Renaissance Woman” by The Orange County Register, and as founder and editor-in-chief of the non-partisan HS Radio e-magazine and podcast, Patricia loves encouraging new writers and interviewing other “Renaissance people”, such as Neil deGrasse Tyson, Jane Friedman, and more. She also hosts an “Expert in Failed Relationships” Advice Column there. Patricia holds a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing and Education, and has conducted seminars extensively in various venues and schools throughout the US and overseas. She was named one of Top 25 Mentors for Young Women and Girls 2010 and 2011, by the Hot Mommas Project. The Diva Doctrineis an extension of the guidance and support she hopes to give to women.
