“Chiseled”: A Memoir of Identity, Duplicity and Divine Wine” is Danuta Pfeiffer’s stunning story of her adventurous, remarkable life.
San Diegans may remember “Danuta” as the sunny, vivacious co-host of “Sun-up San Diego,” which aired on KFMB-TV during the 1980s. That was then.
Danuta Pfeiffer’s whole tale, however, is now told in her new autobiography, which she’ll read from at a special event at 4 p.m., Sunday, June 7 at the Women’s Museum of California, located at 2730 Historic Decatur Road in Liberty Station.
It begins with her experience as an unwed teenage mother escaping to the wilds of Alaska; to the wilds of Alaska; her eventual life in journalism and television evangelism as Pat Robertson’s “The 700 Club” sidekick – and her shocking dismissal; her trauma as a wife caught in a web of deceit and substance abuse; losing and finding her sons; and, hardly least, her discovery of her beloved father’s secrets.
Today, Danuta, along with her husband, Robin Pfeiffer, tend their 70-acre vineyard and Oregon winery.
But that is now. And, that’s not all. Even after finally living happily in a loving marriage and as a successful winemaker, she rediscovers, during a sojourn to the Carpathian Mountains of Poland, long-buried family secrets.
“Chiseled” is Danuta’s story – told boldly enough to chip away at the challenges of her life, and finally, serenely, arriving at a shining core of truth and, peace.
The event is free, but space is limited.
