Sunday Plans?

8 Nov

Sunday looks to be a lovely day, a beautiful 70 degree day in our nation’s capitol.  And with the Washington Redskins on bye week, there really is no excuse to be sitting at home all day.

I just wish there was something fun to do…. Something the whole family could enjoy…. Something interesting, interactive, and intellectually stimulating…


I just remembered…

This Sunday, Sushmita Muzumdar will be holding her first solo show and workshop featuring her lovely artisan-handmade-books, Chai, Stories, & Art!  A place where one can appreciate intricate art, the beauty of old-fashioned story-telling, and walk away with something one created all on their own.

Either way, I know where I’ll be this Sunday from 2-4 pm…

Popcorn Gallery at Glen Echo Park
7300 MacArthur Boulevard
Glen Echo, MD 20812

Care to join? We’d love to see ya! So please let us know if you’re coming with an RSVP HERE

Sushmita received her Bachelor’s degree in Applied Arts from Bombay University in India and then worked as an art director in the advertising industry in Mumbai! She volunteers as a docent with the Smithsonian’s Freer & Sackler Galleries of Art in Washington DC where she was trained in Asian art history. She is a graduate of EWI’s Training for Success program and lives in Arlington with her son, daughter, and husband. For more about her interesting life, view her website at Handmade Storybooks.


EWI Board Member Howie Gets Book Contract!

Howard Feinstein gets Contract to Publish his Civil Rights Memoir “Fire On The Bayou” 

Hats off to Howard Feinstein, Member of EWI Board of Directors for securing a contract to publish his civil rights memoir “Fire On The Bayou” in 2013.

“This milestone marks a major step in my own entrepreneurial journey, which began when I moved on from law and plunged — with almost nothing in the way of planning — into the world of music and writing.  You can’t believe how many people told me that I was being irresponsible. A couple of people literally questioned my mental health, suggesting that I needed to get some counseling. However, at this point, things are going quite well with music, and I will now be publishing my second book, with more to come.”


Congratulations Howie for your determination, passion and belief in your gifts: music, writing and the law. You represent all that EWI believes in and more.
