Kristin Newman
Title: 
What I was doing while you were breeding

Kristin Newman spent much of her twenties and thirties buying dresses to wear to her friends' weddings and baby showers. Not ready to settle down and in need of an escape from her fast-paced job as a sitcom writer, Kristin instead traveled the world, often alone, for several weeks each year. In addition to falling madly in love with the planet, Kristin fell for many attractive locals, men who could provide the emotional connection she wanted without costing her the freedom she desperately needed. For more information please contact Julia Hendon at 256-881-0257 or jhendon@hmcpl.org. We meet the fourth Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at Angel's Island Coffee.
