Yesterday I attended an Open House at Random House. It was a fabulous program of panels and book signings, with opportunities to meet authors and get copies of their new books.
The day began with the perspectives of a debut novelist, Lauren Graham, the actress best known for her roles in the series Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, who spoke about her recently released book, Someday, Someday, Maybe.
Alex Guarnaschelli gave a candid and entertaining look at her cooking experiences and Food Network appearances, as well as insights into writing her cookbook, Old-School Comfort Food.
R.J. Palacio, author of Wonder, and Emily Bazeldon, author of Sticks and Stones, discussed the topic of bullying.
Other highlights of the day in photos, from the Summer Buzz Books presentation:
William Landay, author of Defending Jacob, which is now available in paperback.
Karin Slaughter, whose latest thriller, Unseen, will be published in July 2013.
Marisha Pessl, author of Special Topics in Calamity Physics, whose new novel, Night Film, will be published in August 2013.
Colum McCann, author of Let the Great World Spin, winner of the National Book Award, whose new novel, TransAtlantic, will be published in June 2013.
Many thanks to Random House for an extremely enjoyable event.
Enjoy life with books...
