February San Diego DimeStories Ope Mic

Friday,  February 8, 2019 



Guest Host:  Janice Alper!


Janice Alper has had multiple careers and many lives.  Now in her fourth life she has reinvented herself as a writer of sorts.  Born in Brooklyn, raised her family in California, lived and worked in Australia for three years and returned permanently to San Diego eleven years ago. Janice will tell you, “You can take the girl out of Brooklyn, but not Brooklyn out of the girl.”  Just watch her work a crowd and you’ll see.
