            The opportunity to have Gasbarre speak at the luncheon ties in with the theme “Women in the Arts”. She will join a program focusing on three DuBois natives who found success in the arts – specifically in theatre, opera, and movies/TV. Current DuBois residents Sharon Folmar, Nikki Cherry, and Ashley Simpson-Niger will bring these women to life through their presentation.

            Reservations and payment for the luncheon are due by March 9. The cost is $10 and includes soup, salad, sandwich, and dessert.

She holds a B.S. in psychology from John Carroll University in Cleveland, and a M.A. in public communication and media studies from Fordham University in New York City. She currently lives in Brooklyn, New York, where she is a freelance culture, lifestyle and relationship writer for national consumer magazines and popular websites.

            Her memoir “How to Love an American Man:  A True Story,” was published by Harper Collins in August 2011. The book traces the year Gasbarre spent receiving love advice from her grandma, Gloria, in a way that's transforming the way women of all ages and relationship statuses are thinking about men . . . and womanhood.
