Friends,

I'm reading with Molly Crabapple and Aryn Kyle tomorrow (Tuesday) as part of Big Umbrella January: Women to Watch night. Come to Bar 2A at 8 p.m. for the women. Stay for the $4 whisky deals.

Hope to see you there,

Jessica
Happy 2015! This year we resolve to bring you even more excellent nonfiction by emerging and established writers. Join us Tuesday the 13th for our 2015 kick-off with women you should certainly watch in the upcoming year: Aryn Kyle (BOYS AND GIRLS LIKE YOU AND ME) Molly Crabapple (Vice) ...

On this National POW/MIA Recognition Day, I'm thinking of my grandfather, a WWII POW in Stalag 17, and his 36-year search to bring his son and namesake home from Vietnam
Every Memorial Day, I take out a scrapbook my grandmother made over 40 years ago. Each page is filled with photographs of young men I've never met. Under every face is the exhortation: WHERE IS HE? My uncle's face is on page three.

When most 20-somethings have dating questions, they call a single friend. A few might call their moms. But what if your "person" is a 60+ guy who also happens to be your dad?

"In a city of foodies, he may be the oldest."
At 103, Harry Rosen eats dinner every evening at a fine restaurant, always ordering fish, and often lying to fellow diners curious about his age.

2. Stop saying “yes” when you don’t truly mean it. People actually respect you more when you set boundaries.
It is conventional wisdom that we’re our own worst enemies and despite the cliche, the idea rings true. We often drive ourselves insane striving for perfection in our experiences, relationships and selves, and honestly it just becomes exhausting.
