A Sweet T. Christmas

This Christmas believe that your greatest wishes can come true; even those you didn’t know to wish for. Returning for a third holiday season is the laughingly lovely story of a heavenly stranger, a hapless handyman, a hopeless hostess, a hopping-mad Santa, and their hysterical hunt for the holy grail of wish granting, a winning lottery ticket! The show that has sold out the last two Decembers returns to the Black Fedora Comedy Mystery Theatre.  Friends, family, and co-workers looking to share some laughs this season, and those who like their holiday entertainment a little bit silly, a little bit sweet. Rated: PG (Contains humor and content perhaps over the heads of children under age 9)

Wide Angle Lunches Presents: Deb Ebenstein

Wide Angle Lunches is delighted to announce its ninth lunchtime speaker series at the Charleston Library Society.  This fall Wide Angle features six distinctly talented speakers, but common among them is that they are true and gifted storytellers. Through photographs, music, and words, both written and spoken, their work reveals to us worlds and ideas we might not otherwise encounter. Do not miss this opportunity to hear their stories, and maybe even gain perspective on your own! As always, we promise you that your hour at CLS will revive and recharge you in the middle of your day.

Mani Pedi STAT

Diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease at age 16, Deb Ebenstein underwent surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation treatment during the years of prom, pimples, and SATs.  At 28 she tackled a rare blood condition that led to months of hospitalization, surgery, and more treatment.  And then, at 33, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, eight weeks after the birth of her son. In her first book, Mani Pedi STAT, Ebenstein’s honest and unfiltered account of her experience with serious illness and recovery reveals her prescription for survival: girlfriends, family, and an unapologetic devotion to the mani-pedi (and other seemingly trivial indulgences). Ebenstein is a Jersey girl turned wife, mother, therapist, and writer.  She is a graduate of Rutgers College and received her Masters in Social Work from Yeshiva University.  She lives in Westchester County, New York with her husband and two children.
