Sick of being known just as "the girl from The Blair Witch Project," Heather Donahue left Hollywood and the film industry and set off to join her new boyfriend growing weed. And now she's written a book about it. The actress-turned-marijuana-farmer will be on hand to discuss and sign Growgirl: How My Life After The Blair Witch Project Went to Pot tonight at the Tattered Cover Colfax.
From the bizarre patriarchal gender dynamic between the growers and their "pot wives" to the ever-present fear of getting caught, Donahue reveals the intriguing world of weed in the place she renames Nuggettown to protect the not-so-innocent. Donahue has written a fascinating, conversational book about personal evolution that allows a peek into a world that readers from fellow Nuggettown Denver will surely appreciate. And through her trials going from acting to a job full of hard manual labor, Donahue shows that she's much more than just that girl from The Blair Witch Project.
The reading begins tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Tattered Cover, 2526 East Colfax Avenue. For more information, go to tatteredcover.com.
