Sarah’s story belongs to anyone who has ever gone through pain andloss to come out stronger and better. Don’t miss this one!”

Renee Rosen, What The Lady Wants
Saturday, December 6 at 2:00pm
We had planned for Renee to be with us last year for DOLLFACE but it didn’t work out so finally, we bring you the fab Renee Rosen!
Our friend Erika Robuck, Author had this to say, “Rosen skillfully charms, fascinates, frustrates, and moves her readers in this turn of the century tale. Set on an epic historical stage, What the Lady Wants contains all of the hedonism, decadence, success, and tragedy of the great American novel.”
In late-nineteenth-century Chicago, visionary retail tycoon Marshall Field made his fortune wooing women customers with his famous motto: “Give the lady what she wants.” His legendary charm also won the heart of socialite Delia Spencer and led to an infamous love affair.
