Living Memoir: Genre Party

Doors open at 11:00 AM

Doors close at 12:45 PM, no late entry

1:00 PM Living Memoir Program begins

3:30 PM end

Where: Half Moon Bay, California, in the very place, the home, where the scenes of Kwento by Nica happen.

6:00 PM Bonus ~ the Lighted Boat Festival is happening later in the evening at the Pillar Point Harbor from 6 PM to 8 PM. This is a good day to be in Half Moon Bay.


What to Expect

Light holiday shopping. In her memoir, Kwento by Nica, Nica writes about how she became an artist by joining craft fairs in the Bay Area. Nica invited her artist vendor friends to sell their work. You will find the best of East Asian jewelry by Adi of @zebadesigns, BAY AREA's BEST COOKIE made by Alex of @chipideecookies, and the finest of ceramics by Celeste of @cwongceramics ~ Revisit this page to see a short list of artisan vendors to shop from. Shopping happens from 11AM-1PM.

Listen to Jazz. Buckle up because we have live jazz. The moment when Nica learned how to properly listen to jazz, hear the chorus format, and understand the sonata form is when she learned how to embed rhythm in her memoir. Nica is not a lyrical writer, rather she's jazz. Prepare to sit under the trees and listen to the best of todays jazz sounds by Jules and Marley. Don't miss to offer a generous thank you tip for live music.

Get a reading. 2023 has been a transformative year. Receive a tarot reading from San Mateo Coast's energy healer, Nadine Silverman. $20 cash or Venmo for a 10 min reading. This is a gift! Nadine usually charges $150 for 30 mins.

Live Fashion illustration. Attendance tip: come dressed as your best creative self. You might get illustrated! Nica's Living Memoir is featuring Fashion Illustrator Mackenzie Crosby. Be immortalized in the pages of a Living Memoir. Yay!?

Live Reading of Chapter 1 and 2, Kwento by NicaBesides listening to jazz, eating cookies, making friends, and being an artist in community, Nica will be present to read to you the first two chapters of Kwento by Nica
