Redefining Diva: Life Lessons from the Original Dream Girl offers highly personal reflections from Sheryl Lee Ralph, the Broadway star of the original Dreamgirls, including her take on supposed feuds with other so-called divas Diana Ross and Jennifer Holliday. She further writes that a true diva is a woman of strength and conviction, one filled with self-awareness, self-respect and self-affirmation. In other words, you could say her book doubles as something of a woman's empowerment guide. Wednesday, July 25, at 6:30 p.m. Busboys & Poets, 5331 Baltimore Ave., Hyattsville, Md.
