<strong>Betsy Chasse, "Tipping Sacred Cows,"</strong> 4 p.m., <em>In a book that's anything but quiet, BetsyChasse takes readers on a playful romp through the muddy fields of life and spirituality. Witty, yet unflinching, Chasse exposes her own experience tipping sacred cows and dissects the fragile beliefs we all hold so dear. Because the truth is, we each have a choice to believe the stories we tell ourselves or create new ones. A candid, no-nonsense confession, Chasse's story gives readers the freedom to break free from their old patterns and gleefully frolic through fields, cow tipping at will and in the process, create a new reality for themselves. </em> Book Passage, 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera.
