JOIN US FOR THIS AMAZING EVENT
Author Trifecta! Join colleagues and friends Lauren Smith-Brody (The Fifth Trimester), Caroline Campion (The Dinner Plan and Keepers), and Elisabeth Egan (A Window Opens) as they share their stories with us. Food tasting from The Dinner Plan begins at 10 AM, author discussion at 10:30 AM. Books available for purchase and signing. Open to the community. Please join us.
The three authors are colleagues and friends--at one time they all worked at GLAMOUR magazine. Liz is currently the book editor, Lauren was the Executive Editor and Caroline was a Contributing Editor. They have all taken different paths and have each written a book--or two.
Some of us will prepare dishes in advance from Caroline Campion's book, The Dinner Plan, and we will all enjoy these delicious dishes during the morning gathering. The cookbook is fantastic and has clever strategy tabs (Extra Fast, One-Dish, Make Ahead) on the pages to help in planning your meals/menus. Caroline lives in Gladstone, NJ.
Liz Egan lives in Montclair, NJ and wrote her novel, A Window Opens, during her child's early morning (5 AM) swim practices. I enjoyed meeting Alice Pearse, the compulsively honest, longing-to-have-it-all, sandwich generation heroine of her book. She is a mostly-happily married mother of three, an attentive daughter, an ambivalent dog-owner, a part-time editor, a loyal neighbor, and a Zen commuter. She is not: a cook, a craftswoman, a decorator, an active PTA member, a natural caretaker, or the breadwinner. But then her husband makes a radical career change....
Lauren Smith-Brody's The Fifth Trimester is your new best friend: a brilliant, tells-it-like-it-is guide that helps moms cope with the demands of the real world after the baby arrives. The first three trimesters (and the fourth--those blurry newborn days) are for the baby, but The FIfth Trimester is when the working mom is born. No matter what the job or how you define work, you're going to have a lot of quesitons. How can I achieve 50/50 at home with my partner? Like What to Expect When You're Expecting and The Happiest Baby on the Block, this is an indispensable guide every new mom needs on her shelf.
