Starbux Diary

Christine Ferrera performs selections from her book Starbux Diary. Starbux Diary: My 10-year Journey to Caffeinated Enlightenment began in 2005 when I was at a Starbucks store and noticed that their customer feedback cards read, "We'd love to hear your thoughts..." Taking their invitation literally, I conceived of an endurance art project in which I jot down my thoughts about life, love and art each day on a comment card and mail the original to Starbucks Coffee's customer relations department. Sometimes, Starbucks writes back. A selection of diary entries, drawings and actuarial tables, this book commemorates the 10th anniversary of my uniquely humorous take on endurance art.
