Launch parties for new book by Kenwood author

Kenwood author Rebecca Rosenberg has released a new book, Gold Digger: The Remarkable Baby Doe Tabor, and is hosting three book launch events in June.

This historical fiction based on a true story, the book starts in 1878 in Colorado when Lizzie Doe's family loses everything in a fire. The 20-year-old is forced to marry and go west to prospect a gold mine in Colorado, hoping to send money home to her parents. Miners, unaccustomed to such delicate beauty, nickname her Baby Doe, after a newborn deer.

But Baby Doe proves herself tougher than they imagine when she finds herself abandoned, pregnant and running the mine alone. Her pluck gains the admiration of Silver King Horace Tabor, married and twice her age, and running for U.S. Senator. In Tabor, Baby Doe finds devotion and true passion. When scandal and economic ruin threatens Tabor's life, Baby Doe must make a painful choice.

Learn more about the book, its author, and the unforgettable Baby Doe Tabor. You can attend one of three events coming up: June 6, 6:30 p.m. at Readers' Books in Sonoma; June 9, 1-3 p.m. at Breathless Wines in Healdsburg; and June 13, 7 p.m. at Copperfield Books in Santa Rosa.

Rosenberg will be on hand to sign books, “Wild West” refreshments will be served, and there will be a visual presentation and door prizes.

Line up for A Chorus Line

After eight seasons presenting its critically acclaimed “Broadway Under the Stars” musical revues, Transcendence Theatre Company is staging its first Broadway musical.

The award-winning Sonoma County-based theater company opens its 2019 “Broadway Under the Stars” summer series with the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical A Chorus Line.

The musical ran for 6,137 performances on Broadway. When it closed in 1990, A Chorus Line achieved the milestone as the longest running Broadway show in history.

Transcendence Theatre Company presents A Chorus Line from June 14 to 30, with weekend evening performances presented outdoors at Jack London State Historic Park .

“We have been dreaming about producing A Chorus Line for a decade,” said Amy Miller, artistic Director of Transcendence Theatre Company. “This is a groundbreaking moment for our company and for this entire community that has supported Transcendence and helped make this dream a reality.”

The “Broadway Under the Stars” experience includes pre-show picnicking at 5 p.m. in the park's sprawling vineyard and meadow. Audiences are invited to enjoy musical entertainment before the main performance with homemade picnics or gourmet picnics purchased at nearby stores. At the venue there are pre-show dining options with a variety of food from local gourmet food trucks and vendors and fine wine representing several Sonoma County wineries at each performance.
