Oh my gosh guys, this is a good giveaway! Northshire Bookstore, our area's very own independent bookstore, is hosting New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Weiner on Sunday, October 16th in Saratoga Springs and I have THREE PAIRS of tickets to give away, so grab a girlfriend and enter NOW!
Jennifer Weiner, presenting Hungry Heart: Adventures in Life, Love, and Writing will be interviewed live on stage by Elaina Richardson, President of Yaddo on Sunday, October 16th at 1pm at Congregation Shaara Tfille, 84 Weibel Avenue in Saratoga Springs. Doors open at 12:30 pm.
Jennifer Weiner is many things: a #1 "New York Times "bestselling author, a Twitter phenomenon, and an unlikely feminist enforcer (The New Yorker). She's also a mom, a daughter, and a sister; a former rower and current cyclist; a best friend and a reality TV junkie. In her first foray into nonfiction, she takes the raw stuff of her personal life and spins into a collection of essays on modern womanhood as uproariously funny and moving as the best of Tina Fey, Fran Lebowitz, and Nora Ephron. Jennifer grew up as an outsider in her picturesque Connecticut hometown (a Lane Bryant outtake in an Abercrombie & Fitch photo shoot) and at her Ivy League college, but finally found her people in newsrooms in central Pennsylvania and Philadelphia, and her voice as a novelist, activist, and New York Times columnist.
No subject is off-limits in this intimate and honest essay collection: sex, weight, envy, money, her mom's newfound lesbianism, and her estranged father's death. From lonely adolescence to modern childbirth to hearing her six-year-old daughter's use of the f-word "fat" for the first time, Jennifer Weiner "goes there," with the wit and candor that have endeared her to readers all over the world. By turns hilarious and deeply touching, this collection shows that the woman behind treasured novels like "Good in Bed "and "Best Friends Forever "is every bit as winning, smart, and honest in real life as she is in her fiction."
Okay now for the giveaway details, each pair to two tickets is a "Bring a Friend!" set which includes 2 Seats and 1 Book: Admission for two to the event, plus one hardcover copy of "Hungry Heart." To enter, simply comment below, and the winners will be chosen at random and notified via email on Thursday, October 13th. Good luck mamas! xoxo
