WORKSHOP: The Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide with Patrice Banks

Too many of us women feel powerless when it comes to their cars. Mechanic-speak sounds like a foreign language, and the auto repair bill contains a lot of unnecessary or overpriced repairs. How do you tell if you need new brakes? How often are you supposed to change your air filter? What does that light on your dashboard mean?
If this sounds all-too familiar, join us for a workshop with Patrice Banks, author of The Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide, on Saturday, September 23rd at 2:00pm! Patrice will host a presentation and book signing inside followed by a workshop in the parking lot, where everyone will get a chance to see the skills in action. 
This is a ticketed event! Because of the demonstration, we can only host 25 people for this special event, so be sure to purchase your tickets below today!

Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide by Patrice Banks
A do-it-herself guide to auto maintenance, roadside emergencies, and the real scoop on how women can get honest car service at the garage, from engineer turned auto mechanic and award-winning entrepreneur Patrice Banks.
Do you feel lost when explaining your car problems to a mechanic? Do you panic when something goes wrong with your ride? Have you felt like you were being overcharged or pressured into unnecessary add-ons at the auto shop?
Fear no more: The Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide has got your back.
So many women feel powerless, nervous, or embarrassed when taking our cars in for a repair, and yet we outnumber men both as drivers and as customers at auto repair shops The time has come for us to grab the wheel and finally take control of our cars.
Filled with easy-to-follow illustrations and instructions, great tips, and lifesaving rules of thumb, The Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide will help take away the confusion and mystery surrounding cars, teach women what they need to know about how their cars work, and what they need to do to keep them running smoothly.
Patrice Banks was once like most of us: a self-professed "auto airhead" who was clueless about car maintenance, yet convinced that mechanics were taking advantage of her. Now she's an auto pro devoted to empowering women to learn basic car repairs and knowing what to do in an emergency. So whether you get a flat tire when you're stranded in the middle of nowhere, your car overheats, or a mysterious dashboard light suddenly starts blinking, help is just a reach-in-the-glove-box away.
