Nat’l Reading Group Month Celebration

National Reading Group Month is sponsored by the Women’s National Book Association, a networking and educational group founded in New York City in 1917 by a group of women booksellers when the all-male Bookseller’s League chose to remain all-male. There are chapters (not just for women) in NRGM_Logocities around the country. All the chapters hold programs in October and I am delighted to be co-moderating the New York program. If you live in the NY metro area, you can come and hear a great panel of authors at 6pm on Wed. Oct. 21st at the Mint Theater in midtown.

The authors are: Eva Hoffman (Appassionata), Christina Baker Kline (Bird in Hand), C.M. Mayo (The Last Prince of the Mexican Empire), Julie Metz (Perfection: A Memoir of Betrayal and Renewal), and Roxana Robinson (Cost). They will speak about their books and answer questions from the moderators and the audience.

If you’re not a WNBA member, the cost is $20 (students, $10), which includes a tote bag of books and other goodies from publishers, great refreshments, and the opportunity to buy the authors’ books, get them signed, and chat. It’s a lovely, informal evening. If you’d like to attend, please RSVP to programs@wnba-nyc.org.
