Sad News for Coffee and Critique

Yesterday I received the sad news that one of the dearest members of Coffee and Critique, Bea Siros, passed away.

Words cannot express what a wonderful woman and an inspiring writer Bea was. Bea recently completed her memoir about growing up in North St. Louis. Bea will be greatly missed, and my life has been enriched by having known her.

A celebration of Bernice's life will be held Tuesday, July 31, 2012 4-9 PM at The BAUE Funeral Home, 620 Jefferson Street, St. Charles, MO. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Humane Society of St. Charles, MO.

Nick Nixon Reading Tomorrow at C&C

UPDATE: Nick e-mailed this morning that due to an emergency (his dog is about to have puppies) he can't make it today. He should be there next week. Stay tuned!

In case you didn't receive my e-mail to members of Coffee and Critique. Here's some good news:

Country Western legend Nick Nixon will be rejoining us at the Rendezvous Cafe tomorrow. He will be accompanied by his lovely daughter Autumn Rose.

Nick will be reading Part II of his tribute to Chet Atkins. I can't wait to hear it!

Here's a video of his song "Eight Belles." Enjoy!
