Finding My Badass Self with Sherry Stanfa-Stanley

The Village Life 3.0 Committee presents an evening of humor as writer Elaine Soloway interviews Sherry Stanfa-Stanley, author of Finding My Badass Self: A Year of Truths and Dares. The book will be available for sale and signing immediately following the program.

Fighting midlife inertia, Stanfa-Stanley stares down a year of fear through The 52/52 Project: a year of weekly new experiences designed to push her far outside her comfort zone. While finding her courage in the most unlikely of circumstances, Sherry ultimately finds herself.

Sherry Stanfa-Stanley is a writer, humorist, and squeamish adventurer. By day, Sherry attempts to respectably represent her alma mater as a communication director at The University of Toledo, where she was named one of UT’s Outstanding Women of 2017.

Soloway’s life and marriage are the basis for the current hit TV series Transparent and she is the author of Bad Grandma and Other Chapters in a Life Lived Out Loud.

To register for this event, please call the Village Office at 773.248.8700.
