“An Evening of Stories, Music & Cake”

This Is My Brave, Inc. and Depressed Cake Shop are proud to present an evening of storytelling and cake.

Ten of the 35 incredible writers from Amy Ferris’ new book, Shades of Blue will participate in This Is My Brave’s first Los Angeles production by sharing stories that are life affirming, funny, poignant and personal. The evening will include musical performances by Stephen Bishop, Jimmy Camp, Julie Silver, and Shannon Curtis.

Praise for Shades of Blue:

“Thirty-five brilliant, vivid, edgy writers in Amy Ferris’s compelling new book, Shades of Blue, unflinchingly shout out the real true down-dirty story of the blues. These compelling tales of depression aren’t depressing—they are emblazoned with hope—because every person in this book is a survivor. I have no doubt whatsoever that Shades of Blue will save lives—maybe even yours.”
—Laura Davis, bestselling author of I Thought We’d Never Speak Again, co-author of The Courage To Heal, and founder of The Writer’s Journey
