How to Be Happy: Eleanor Davis, Monday Sept 15, 7:30

Monday Sept 15 at 7:30, Eleanor Davis (and maybe husband Drew Weing) visits with her slideshow presentation of life, work, art, etc and also to share her new work:  How to be Happy.  Come talk comics, process, the struggle between freelancing and working on personal projects, etc.  Takoma Park MD Library, 101 Philadelphia Ave, Takoma Park MD 20912.   (or a short-ish walk down the hill from the Takoma Park Metro stop on the Red Line).
