Highlands Ranch: ("Ranch" makes me want to wear chaps and cowboy boots, but it's really too hot for that. ~Gretchen Berg)
Self-described "award-wanting" writer Gretchen Berg has dealt with the recession: she has eaten cereal for dinner, given up the gym membership, and come face to face with looming unemployment. To cope, she decided to uproot her life and move to the Middle East. She expected to make some good money, pay off some bad debt, and take some photos of camels. She did not expect to feel at home, to fall for a student, or to have Diet Coke withdrawal. Berg will read from and sign her new book I Have Iraq in My Shoe: A Memoir (Sourcebooks). Irreverent, hilarious, and completely relevant, I Have Iraq in My Shoe takes a single, broke, fashion-conscious American female who prefers Project Runaway to CNN and tosses her into Iraq in exchange for cash and vacation time.
"I'm going to be in the Mile High Club! Wait, no, that's not right. City. The Mile High City. I'll be at the Tattered Cover on July 12, which is Thursday AND my birthday" ~Gretchen Berg
