The Sip & Read That Made Me Cry

WP_20150726_064

On Sunday, July 26th 2015 I hosted a Sip and Read for a few of my friends, family and avid supporters. It was an invite for just 30 exquisite ladies. Two of them were ladies that won the opportunity to attend because of their responses to a post I had made on my blog about Child Marriage In Malawi. Sure enough they were in attendance and I was so honored to meet them.
The idea behind the event was to gather some women together to encourage them to pursue their dreams just as I have and to recognize that all “successful” people started with a dream and a step. The event was full of laughter, food, drinks ( i mean drinks) and plenty of signing and reading.
I read from Chapter 1 in my book “Screw It Go Ahead and Quit Cold Turkey” and from Chapter 3 in “Miss Independent, Misunderstood”. Everyone was so patient and so kind and listened while I read on. There was also the Q&A session which was so fun as some of the questions were unexpected and even got me thinking. I get different questions at different events be it at book signing, radio, tv or on the red carpet. But this time, it was so intimate that I answered so honestly and fearlessly every single question and it felt almost therapeutic. Both books can be purchased wherever books are sold but the easiest would probably be MY WEBSITE or on AMAZON 20% of all purchases go to the Pamela Erere Foundation (PEF), so you would not only be supporting me but also the many women and children in Nigeria who do not have any support otherwise. There were so many pictures but I have attached a few. Did I say I was so overwhelmed with the love and support that I cried? Yes I did. lol
