VDay Memphis event this weekend

The ladies of VDay Memphis e-mailed me and asked if I could mention their upcoming event. “We’re a lively group of Memphis ladies – students, moms, professionals, artists, teachers, theater folks – from all backgrounds, ages, and ethnic groups – who work hard to put together this annual show to benefit local battered women and children,” they explained.

Sounds like a good group. Here are the details:
