Fountain actress Karen Kondazian (The Milk Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore, Master Class, Night of the Iguana, Orpheus Descending, and more) will present a reading and Q&A of her critically acclaimed historical novel, The Whip, at Book Soup in West Hollywood on Saturday, February 11 from 4pm – 5:30pm.   Enjoy the book signing and indulge yourself in some cowboy food, beer, wine, sarsaparilla and banjo music!

The Whip is inspired by the true story of a woman, Charlotte “Charley” Parkhurst (1812-1879) who lived most of her extraordinary life as a man. As a young woman in Rhode Island, she fell in love and had a child. Her husband was lynched and her baby killed. The destruction of her family drove her west to California, dressed as a man, to track the murder. Charley became a renowned stagecoach driver. She killed a famous outlaw, had a secret love affair, and lived with a housekeeper who, unaware of her true sex, fell in love with her. Charley was the first woman to vote in America (as a man). Her grave lies in Watsonville, California.

SAT FEB 11 4:00-5:30 pm Book Soup 8818 Sunset Blvd   West Hollywood
