As you know, Grace is one rough tough cream puff, who brings the wisdom of the ages to the alley to help up your game and ours. Grace, who turns 95 this year has won most every bowling trophy there is in Santa Maria, California. Legally blind, she’s a life-long bowler with a lot of tricks up her sleeve and is currently in two leagues. Last week she bowled twice and scored 199 in one of the games.
The only thing Grace likes more than bowling is her granddaughter, Brandi (who works with The Kitchen Sisters) and public radio.
This year’s Bowling Extravaganza is also a launch party for The Kitchen Sisters new NPR Morning Edition series, The Keepers — stories of activist archivists, rogue librarians, curators, collectors and historians — keepers of the culture and the cultures and collections they keep. The series starts airing in June so we’ll do a sneak peak and celebrate.
Come join a sparkling array of Bowling Celebrities—Alice Waters, Cecilia Chiang, Rebecca Solnit, Michael Pollan, Judith Belzer, Wendy MacNaughton, Armistead Maupin, Ayelet Waldman, Amy Tan—along with Nikki and Davia and a ton of your community for a night of bowling with Grace as she shares her methods and secrets.
Come for the schmooze or come for the shoes.
$175. Includes food, drinks and all the bowling you can stand.
