LCF Author’s Book of Comedic Essays Out May 5

La Cañada Flintridge resident Kristen Brakeman’s collection of comic essays, “Is That the Shirt You’re Wearing?” will be published by Tidal Press on May 5.
Brakeman, whose work has been published in the Huffington Post, the New York Times, Erma Bombeck Writer’s Workshop and the Washington Post, among other notable outlets, has woven together journal entries from two summers of her life. The essays deal with everything from shopping at Hollister to an aversion to being called “Ma’am.”
Brakeman is scheduled for a book launch and signing on May 12 at Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse.
