An Evening of Storytelling with Gerald DiPego and Cynthia Ward 6.16.22

June 16 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Join us for a special evening of storytelling at Carr Winery in Santa Ynez with Screenwriter Gerald DiPego and Author Cynthia Ward.

Screenwriter and novelist Gerald DiPego, whose credits include the movies “Phenomenon” with John Travolta, “Message in a Bottle,” with Kevin Costner, “The Forgotten” with Julianne Moore, “Instinct” with Anthony Hopkins, “Words and Pictures” with Juliette Binoche and Clive Owen, and “Angel Eyes” with Jennifer Lopez. He has published five novels, including “Cheevey,” 1996, a top pick of the New England Booksellers Association. He has written and staged plays and readings in the Santa Ynez Valley and has offered to read two of the short stories he has written over the past sixteen months for this special event.

Cynthia Carbone Ward will also present a few stories during the evening. A former middle school teacher and fellow of the South Coast Writing Project, Cynthia is an essayist and regular contributor to The Santa Barbara Independent. She has published three memoir collections and a book about the teaching of writing. She is a gatherer of stories who has interviewed many people over the years for her oral history website, The Living Stories Collective. The title of her long-running blog, Still Amazed, basically describes her feelings about life.

$25 ticket price includes non-alcoholic beverages and guarantees you a seat. Wine will be available for purchase. Seating is very limited for this event, so be sure to secure your ticket today!

Proceeds from the event will benefit Santa Ynez Beautiful, a 501(c)3 nonprofit created to beautify the Township of Santa Ynez.
