Cori Tadrus writes, "You probably don't know much about me, since you're reading my bio, so here's a little background: I am a humanist. A pacifist by nature, who gets salty when I drink Wild Turkey and sassy when I wear hoop earrings. I dress my French Bulldog, Lola, in funky sweaters when it's cold. I have a degree in anthropology and spent most of my twenties working as a refugee caseworker by day and a bartender by night. I listen to Jay-Z when I cook, Sam Cooke when I bake, and Miles Davis when I write. I am honest to a fault. I believe in conspiracy theories, astrology, the underdog, and stilettos. I suck at math. I am way more flea market than stock market. "

On this first day of Spring we are going to getting happy with our guest and kick this season off on the right foot. Join the conversation.


Athena Wallace has spent the first thirty years of her life desperately trying to be perfect. But as her sassy, unfiltered best friend, Nadine, points out, “being perfect ain’t got shit to do with being happy.” With this reality weighing heavily on her, Athena takes on a new assignment at the magazine where she works as a columnist: an exposé on how six strangers seek happiness through the exotic venues of Manhattan nightlife. Side by side with an eclectic cast of characters – including a millionaire attorney who moonlights as a drag queen and a motorcycle-riding grandma wit h a ‘fuck-it’ list – Athena embarks on a soulful, and often satirical, journey to find her happiness. As she discovers, sometimes you have to look outside of yourself in order to become the person you are meant to be. Purchase your copy here: http://www.coritadrus.com/purchase.html
