A book signing is happening in Santa Monica on February 17.
The book is titled Born Under a Lucky Moon, written by Dana Precious, a wife and mother who had her first inklings of being a writer when she was only ten years-old and she completed her first novel at twenty.
Dana will be signing Born Under a Lucky Moon for Feb 17th, 7PM at Barnes and Noble (Third Street Promenade).
Born Under a Lucky Moon is a real life events tale recounting the story of two very important years in the lives of Jeannie Thompson and her colorful family members to whom "things" just seem to happen.
Set in 1986, the story straddles back and forth from the Great Lakes of Michigan to Los Angeles, California.
It is a story of surprise marriages, a renegade granny, a sprinkler system cursed by the gods, and myriad other factors Jeannie blames for her full-tilt, out-of-control existence. But it's also about good surprises—like an unexpected proposal that might just open Jeannie's eyes to her real place, among the people she loves most in the world. As the author explains, it was very important for her to write “a warm comedy that understood that families are complicated but that they still love each other deeply. I wanted to make readers feel good and laugh.”
