My adventures in the month of February

I wanted to update everyone and tell you how amazing the IMPACT event in Portland was. The organizers of the event could not have been more gracious and welcoming and the ladies and the stories I heard at the event were so inspirational. What is also so wonderful is that this event raised more funds than last year’s, in spite of the economy.  As I look back on my experiences, what I value the most is the fact that I get to meet so many interesting people–it is as if I am enlarging my circle of friends. I will be posting some pictures of that night on my web site shortly.

This coming week will take me to the East Coast– thankfully to where the weather is warm and sunny! I will be doing a book signing at Books & Books in Bal Harbor and on Saturday morning I will be speaking at the Aventura Turnberry Synagogue. I have a chance to catch up with some friends too.  A short stay for sure, but it should be lots of fun.

Note from Angella

I am most excited about my upcoming trip to Portland where I will be speaking to a sold-out event for the Women’s philanthropy division of the Jewish Federation.  To think that 400 of my books have already been sold before the event is quite unbelievable to me.  The theme of this event centers on people’s stories and how it impacts our lives.

While I was thinking of some points to share at the upcoming Feb. 8th event, it struck me–my maiden name is Maddahi.  In Persian, the word Maddahi means one who tells stories. So, it seems that perhaps I was destined to tell stories!

I will certainly update you on my month-long series of experiences and events.
