Bar Flies – the monthly live reading series curated by PHOENIX columnist Amy Silverman and Valley advertising professional Katie Bravo – is typically held at Valley Bar in downtown Phoenix. COVID-19 chucked a wrench right through the rest of their fifth season, so the duo decided to create a virtual Bar Flies show with illustrated stories. They’re all still true, and as always there’s a theme. This month’s is HOME. For more information about Bar Flies – both live and virtual – visit

Rachel F. Trim’s “Rach-hell: Perimenopausal Woman” first appeared in 2017 during a persistent phase of writer’s block. Cartooning was a surprising venture; a new way for Rachel to express her way through life’s stages and family life. She has been a student of memoir writing for the last decade and an educator for 23 years.
