In 1999, amidst sharing studio space
with local artists, Diane Debevec began taking writing classes at the then
eight-year-old foundation, Women Writing for (a) Change.
Today, as the director of the now-nonprofit organization, she and the
staff are hard at work encouraging women of all ages to find and
celebrate their individual voices.

Women Writing for
(a) Change presents
a night of laugh-out-loud ladies at Go Bananas tonight. Support programs for
local women and girls while having a few laughs — ticket sales benefit the
organization. Area comics performing include Hannah Bishop, Loraine
Braun, Carla Britain, Celeste Brott, Ally Bruener, Kelly Collette, Teri Foltz
and Shelly Iker. Check it out (because yes, chicks are funny, too) at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $15.
It must be
Terrific Lady Day, because down on the river, the Northern Kentucky Chamber and the Cincinnati
USA Regional Chamber present another special event for local ladies at B&B Riverboat
Landing. Connecting Shore to Shore
is a networking happy hour aimed to unite women from both sides of the river,
running 5-7 p.m. tonight. Guests are asked to bring new or gently used accessories
(shoes, handbags, scarves, jewelry) to donate to Dress for Success. Admission
is $20, $15 for Chamber members and reservations should have been made in
advance, but walk-ins are welcome.
More than 100
Norwood residents and business owners will fill the neighborhood for the
Norwood Day Parade,
stepping off at 7 p.m. today. The parade runs along Montgomery Road, from
Ashland to Maple Avenue. This year’s parade theme is “Norwood: There’s No Place
Like Home,” paying tribute not to Dorothy but to the local military personnel
returning home from overseas. Bring a lawn chair (and probably an umbrella).
tonight include the Clermont County Fair, MOTR Pub’s Writer’s Night
with Lucas of The Dukes Are Dead and American Roots
on Fountain Square, featuring Shoot Out the Lights and Straw Boss.
