(*) Faye's workshop will address bullying through her motivating words and activities. Learn of Faye’s experience growing up in her mother's beauty shop in Texas. Faye Lane's Beauty Shop Stories are memories of a Texas Green Bean Queen presented in an award-winning one-woman show. The New York-based writer and performer talks about growing up, “Casa Vale Beauty Salon was an old A-Frame house that was converted into a salon, and on the front porch was Faye, a fat little girl in a glittered-up Burger King crown practicing her beauty queen acceptance speech and dreaming of being a star of the stage!"
