For our Spring edition of TueNight Live we’re spilling SECRETS — some of our deepest, darkest, nearest and dearest. You won’t want to miss this one! Our crew of fabulous grown-ass women tells all.

We’ll be back in the art-filled Invisible Dog gallery, with wine, snacks and salacious stories.

Our storytellers include:

Ada Calhoun (@adacalhoun) is the author of the memoir Wedding Toasts I’ll Never Give, named one of the top ten memoirs of 2017 by Wmagazine; and the history St. Marks Is Dead, one of the best books of 2015, according to Kirkus and the Boston Globe. She has collaborated on several New York Times bestsellers, and written for the New York Times, New York, and The New Republic. Her book Why We Can’t Sleep, based on her viral article “The New Midlife Crisis,” will be out from Grove/Atlantic and Audible in January 2020. 

Mary Lee Kortes (@MaryLeeKortes) toured the world both as a headliner and opening act for Bob Dylan and other notables, expanded her creative work to include what she calls “song therapy,” in schools, hospitals, and working with those affected by various kinds of trauma. She just published her first book: Dreaming of Dylan: 115 Dreams about Bob, a collection of Dylan dreams from people all around the world. All four of her albums landed on Billboard Magazine’s “ten best records of the year” in their years of release. Her internationally acclaimed song-for-song recording of Dylan’s classic “Blood On The Tracks” earned four stars from Rolling Stone

Doreen Oliver (@doreenoliver) is a writer, performer, and speakerwhose work illuminates the beauty, heartbreak, and unpredictability of life through the lens of parenthood. Her award-winning one-woman show about raising a child with autism, EVERYTHING IS FINE UNTIL IT’S NOT, broke a record for the fastest sell-out in the NY Fringe Festival’s 20-year history. A former film producer for Oscar-nominated Lee Daniels Entertainment, Doreen writes essays about race, autism, and life’s contradictions that appear in the New York Times, Washington Post and elsewhere. She is currently at work on a memoir and a tour of the show. 

Diane di Costanzo is the VP/Editorial Director of the Foundry, Meredith’s branded content studio, where she has worked on content for financial firms such as Bank of America, Synchrony Bank, Schwab and Merrill Lynch. Because every modern woman needs a side hustle, she writes for TueNight and CoveyClub, and fails at getting her fiction published, except for the blog-as-novel The Caroline Problem

Joanna manages the Brooklyn House of Comedy & has appeared on Lifetime TV’s “Fempire” & a Mother’s Day ad campaign, “Watch What Happens Live” on Bravo TV with Andy Cohen, and several appearances on Wendy Williams’ “Street Talk” segment. She also created the Black Women in Comedy Festival which premiered during Black History Month & Women’s History Month.

Alison Mazer is an entertainment management consultant and booking agent. A native New Yorker, she literally grew up back stage at Lincoln Center. A consummate Hedhead, Alison saw Hedwig and the Angry Inch seven times on Broadway.

Hitha Herzog (@HithaHerzog) lives in a world where fashion, retail, finance, investigative journalism and data research all co-exist in perfect harmony—a.k.a., New York City. She is the Chief Research Officer of H Squared Research LLC a data driven, research firm for registered investment advisors.
