Copies of Ms. Sassyfras’ book “Horny, Lazy and Ready to Spill: Stories From the Sass Queen” can be purchased in-person during the event. This event will take place at Blue Cypress Books located at 8123 Oak St. This event is free and open to the public.
Valerie Sassyfras is a one of a kind entertainer! She plays keyboard, accordion, mandolin and loves to make audiences go wild with her “wicked” choreography, often performed with accompanying visual projections. Valerie has been delighting audiences for more than 20 years! Even though she has strong roots in cajun and zydeco music, Sassyfras continues to surprise crowds with fresh and hip new sounds. Some of Valerie’s songs deal with heavy topics such as heartbreak, hardships, and death, while others speak about hiding pickles, living in a van down by the river, and just plain having a good night out with your girlfriends! She truly covers the gamut of human emotion with her songwriting.
In Horny, Lazy and Ready to Spill: Stories From the Sass Queen Sassyfras has assembled 33 short stories of her life. From the first time she smoked pot to the first time she took acid…from shoplifting at Saks to her adventures performing with her dearly beloved husband Johnny, this book will thrill you, chill you, and keep a smile on your face. Lots of local New Orleans references, as she was born and bred right here in the Big Easy. Each story comes with a color illustration by the illustrious, formidable talent that is Ceasar Meadows.
