The girl from 'Blair Witch Project' grows weed, writes book

If you're like me, you drove an hour and a half to see The Blair Witch Project when it came out. You let the film take over your entire being, filling your body with aggravation and tension. And during Heather Donahue's terrifying close-up monologue, when she tearfully apologizes for leading her friends into the horror of Burkittsville, you may have thought, "Damn, that girl needs a joint."

Lo and behold, after Blair Witch, Donahue didn't exactly land the leading-lady roles she rightfully deserved. And so she did what any other self-respecting '90s icon would have done—followed her boyfriend to Nuggettown, Calif., and started growing weed for a living. Donahue has written a book about her experience, called Growgirl: How My Life After the Blair Witch Project Went to Pot, detailing the day-to-day activities in a growing community. Now living in San Francisco, Donahue has a refreshingly accepting nature toward her life after Blair Witch, and appears in discussion for the book on Thursday, Jan. 19, at Book Passage. 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. 7pm. Free. 415.927.0960.
