All welcome!

You never know who’ll you meet at a book signing and celebration!


to organize and host a reading of SHE and other Eve Hoffman works forthcoming in MEMORY & COMPLICITY, Mercer University Press 2018.

  1. Identify 3 or 4 co-hosts. Don’t need to know Eve.
  2. Locate a place and set time – library, church/synagogue/mosque, someone’s home, bookstore, art gallery, as program for an already scheduled event, e.g. Rotary, be creative. Need access to 30 chairs and parking.
  3. Get e-mail invitation designed specific to your event from Eve or design your own.
  4. Send e-mail invitations with personal note to at least 200-300 people. (Should get approximately 30 show-ups.) Eve will also do e-blast to her list in your area and put info in occasional newsletter if in public place. Can use evite service if need RSVPs. Eve has info.
  5. Re-send invitation and reminder a few days before event.
  6. Organize drinks and light food.
  7. Set up table for sales and signing books

Other bits…

Eve will bring books to the reading. If the event is held in a non-profit, a percentage of sales will be donated to that non-profit. Approximately half hour after starting time (depends on the group) Eve will read for half and hour or so from SHE and other work tailored to audience, e.g. if in SF, will read pieces that reference SF.

Poems that come from Eve Hoffman’s life as white, southern, Jewish, Smith College educated woman (of a certain age!)  Part southern culture, part history, part memoire.
